Studies show that 60% of all adult volunteers began volunteering by the age of 14. Many young people are not given the opportunity to volunteer or do not know where to start. The Lenawee Community Foundation and its Lenawee YOUTH Council are sponsoring Lenawee Youth Leadership in order to nurture leadership, volunteerism and community spirit among Lenawee youth. Teens interested in positive change need to look no further than Lenawee Youth Leadership camp.
This summer day camp will give young people the opportunity to learn about Lenawee County, themselves, youth assets, leadership skills, goal setting, teamwork, communication, and creative problem solving. Lenawee Youth Leadership is for young persons who want to increase their leadership skills and have their voices heard. Youth participate in hands-on, decision-making activities assisted by trained facilitators, including youth who have previously participated. They learn about making a difference in the lives of others, and have lots of fun along the way.
Lenawee Youth Leadership will be held on July 13, 14 and 15 at Stubnitz Environmental Center from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. The cost is $50, however scholarships are available. Youth ages 12 – 19 are welcome to attend, however preregistration is required. A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
