A week-long professional development program for women who work with youth.

1.

Experience and engage the work of Generation Change, and imagine ways to implement intentional cross-generational mentorship opportunities in your personal and professional life.

2.

Examine personal development as it relates to professional development through workshops on health, wellness, business and philanthropy.

3.

Explore the Universal Youth Needs as a framework for preventative programming.

4.

Create an awareness of the Trust and Boundary polarity in work with youth, and build a plan to bring important language, practices and an early warning sign map back to your organization and colleagues.

5.

Build a toolbox of hands on activities from educational theater and ropes course practices that can be implemented in your classrooms and spaces.

6.

Become a part of a powerful network of women thanking the generations ahead of us and showing up for the generations behind us.

Key Objectives

Spend a week, along side the Girls’ Leadership Camp, with other professionals looking to enhance their ability to build trust and healthy boundaries with young people, create positive youth-centered environments, and develop curriculum for character and leadership education.

 

Start: Monday, July 13th at noon

End: Friday, July 17th at noon

 

Who: We offer this program to a small group of women who are K-12 teachers, coaches, counselors, youth pastors, deans, administrators, social workers, and/or camp leaders.

 

What makes us unique: You will have the opportunity to observe professionals in workshop settings with youth, as well as time with these same professionals in all-adult settings discussing best practices. In other words, you won’t just talk about the work, you will see it live!
