The Level Up virtual conference is an exciting event designed specifically for teens from the military community in Canada. This year’s conference will be the second annual event, and it promises to be an engaging and interactive experience for all attendees.

The conference will feature a range of workshops, speakers, and networking opportunities, all focused on helping teens develop valuable skills and connections. The workshops will cover topics such as leadership, career exploration, mental health, and more.

Speakers include Dr. TA Loeffler and Spencer West. Dr Loeffler brings 35 years of expertise leading people through significant life-changing experiences to every facet of her work. TA’s work and adventures have taken her to 52 different countries and all seven continents. TA has completed 6 and 4/5 of “The Seven Summits,” the highest peak on all seven continents. In 2020, TA was named to the “90 Greatest Canadian Explorers” List by Canadian Geographic. 

The life of visionary and activist Spencer West has been marked by both obstacles and triumph. After losing both legs from the pelvis down at the age of five, he entered a world that might have easily defeated him. Instead, he tackled challenge after challenge, learning to navigate in a world set against those with disabilities. Spencer is a global keynote speaker, content creator, and activist. He is known for summiting Mount Kilimanjaro on his hands and wheelchair and opening for Demi Lovato on a World Tour.

“One of the unique aspects of the Level Up virtual conference is that it provides a safe and supportive environment for teens with a military background to connect with each other,” says Isabelle Werlen, PSP National Recreation Manager and conference Organizer. “This can be especially important for teens who have moved frequently or experienced the challenges of having a parent or family member in the military.”

Attending the Level Up virtual conference is a valuable opportunity for teens to learn, grow, and connect with others who share their interests and experiences. It is an event that should not be missed for those in the military community. Whether you’re a teen with a military background, a cadet or a supporter of the military community, the Level Up virtual conference is an excellent opportunity to engage with a vibrant and supportive community of like-minded individuals.
