Kara Gunnarson

Global Student Leadership Summit Coordinator

Kara Gunnarson is a graduate of Queens University with a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies and most recently graduated from Georgian College with a Post-Graduate Certificate in Fundraising and Resource Management. She finds that she learned the most in her post-graduate experiences in her leadership opportunities with many different clubs and committees on campus - most specifically her obsession with event planning. Her desire to become involved was largely influenced by attending the Ontario Student Leadership Conference (OSLC) in high school. She has now come full circle working with this amazing company.

A self-described wanderlust, Kara blames her childhood on her inability to sit still. She grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, Boston, Massachusetts and most recently Orillia, a small town in Central Ontario. After graduating, she travelled throughout Europe and Southeast Asia. Her favourite part about travelling is meeting new people, exchanging stories with locals and fellow travellers and experiencing the culture of a new country, city or even just neighbourhood.

Kara is extremely excited to be involved with this world-class event combining both her passion for leadership with her love for meeting new people from all over the world!

Where is YLCC?

  • Youth Camps

    “Thank you Stu and Ornj and the AMAZING counsellors and staff for making the past two weeks amazing for Noah. He sobbed when we left, and can’t wait to return. He showed me his journal and we compared it to last year’s - what a difference a year makes.”

  • Youth Camps

    “Nothing makes my heart sing more, than to see my kids having the most amazing life experiences together. YLCC makes this happen every year. Pure Gold. ‘Thank You’ can’t really cover it …”

  • Youth Camps

    “Thank you for the best summer I have experienced to date. YLCC taught me how to embrace my values and to express opinions. The entire camp and amazing staff believed in me achieving any goal I were to set. “
