2014 International Polonia Youth Leadership Conference

The Quo Vadis Conference Series is an annual, weekend-long gathering of young adults, students, and professionals of Polish heritage, aimed to foster leadership skills, reflect on one’s roots, and to sustain a world-wide network of like-minded individuals. The age range of delegates is 18-40 years of age. The conferences allow delegates to participate in leadership challenges, professional networking sessions, skill-building workshops, engrossing events, and engaging lectures and panel discussions with prominent and inspirational guest speakers of local, national, and international Polonia communities, all while meeting and mingling with like-minded Polish youth from around the world.

 

The Quo Vadis movement first began in Ottawa, Ontario back in 2009, by a group of young and ambitious university students of Polish descent. The conference was proven a success and was deemed a crucial event for today’s young Polonia to engage in, in order to foster a sense of heritage, unity, and leadership within our Polish communities.

After the initial conference in Ottawa, Canadian editions of Quo Vadis were then held in Windsor, Ontario (2010), Toronto, Ontario (2011), Calgary and Canmore, Alberta (2012), Montréal, Québec (2013), and now, Vancouver, British Columbia.

In 2012, the movement branched out to the United States, with the first ever US-edition of Quo Vadis held in Chicago, Illinois, followed by New Britain, Connecticut (2013). The first Australian edition was held in Sydney (2013), followed by Melbourne this year.
