2022 Summer Programs
HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER PROGRAMS
LEVEL 1: LEARNDuring the Level 1 experience, students will participate in fun activities focused on skills essential for the middle level including: building self-esteem and self- advocacy skills, learning what it means to be a leader, and ways to create exciting and interesting student activities. Students will leave with better networking skills and connections to leaders across the state.
LEVEL 2: ENGAGE
Team building, goal setting, communication, and organization are key components to being an engaged leader. Participants at this level will have the opportunity to explore concepts of leadership, improve their leadership skills in an engaged way, learn tools to promote positive mental health, and gain an understanding of self and others.
LEVEL 3: ADVOCATE
Entering high school confident and ready is essential to student success. The Level 3 curriculum combine experiential learning with essential skill development to ensure this success. Students will learn valuable skills like self- advocacy, communication, and goal setting - in a creative and engaging way.
LEVEL 4: DEVELOP
A positive high school experience hinges on developing essential leadership skills. This high school program is designed for students who want to learn the necessary skills to become a leader in their school or increase their effectiveness as a leader. Level 4 curriculum is high-energy and focused on developing interpersonal skills, group processes, communication skills, problem solving techniques and planning/evaluation procedures.
LEVEL 5: EMPOWER
Responsibilities continue to increase for high school students: at school, at a job, in the sports arena, or at home. Student leaders need the ability to adapt to a variety of circumstances depending on the demands of the group or task. The Level 5 curriculum examines what causes this range of needs and gives participants the skills to adapt and react to each. The result will empower delegates to recognize which style of leadership is most appropriate in any given circumstance, leading them to success.
LEVEL 6: REACH
This culminating program provides opportunities to revisit all ten of our leadership standards. With a special emphasis on character and ethical decision-making, delegates will utilize a self-directed approach to practicing essential skills needed for life in high school and beyond. Through numerous activities, they will expand their reach to include not only their school organizations, but also their communities, and perhaps even, the world.
For our camps, students will be led by camp staff in activities dedicated to understanding what it means to be a leader. With proven curriculum as the foundation, and unparalleled talent leading each camp, delegates agree that this program is “the most significant learning experience in my life to-date!”
