Keynote Speaker


We are excited to announce this year’s Keynote Speaker …..

Cam Sylvester

Regional Director, North America

  Lattitude was established in 1972 and is the original Gap Year program, having sent nearly 50,000 young volunteers to more than 20 countries.  Cam joined Lattitude last September after nearly 30 years teaching international relations and comparative politics, and developing and/or running a number of international programs at Capilano University  (including the innovative Global Stewardship Program and the Asia Pacific Management Co-op Program).  The student teams he took to the National Model UNs in New York twice won honorable mention for their performances in the simulation.  He first connected with the UNAC back in the early 1980s when he brought students to UNA events while teaching high school.  Cam has also worked as a freelance writer, a commentator on CBC television, and a labourer in a fruit and vegetable cannery.  He is married to Jeanne Mikita, and has two adult children, Shawn and Maggie.  He plays guitar poorly and basketball slowly, and a few old buildings owe their vertical integrity to his questionable DIY skills.  (For more information check out Cam Sylvester on LinkedIn.)
