DALConnects is a free student leadership program offered to all Dalhousie and Kings students.  The program combines exciting and informative workshops, events, leadership retreats and conferences with valuable volunteer work experience.




A workshop schedule is offered throughout the academic year and you accumulate points from your attendance and participation.  The workshops are themed into 4 categories: Foundational leadership, Career Development, Organizational leadership and Social Justice.  The more workshops you attend, the higher the recognition you receive.  Visit the event calendar on  to view the full workshop schedule
