High School Leadership Camp 2024

Updated: 4 days ago

We are so excited to welcome and train all our High School-age leaders at this summer's 2024 High School Leadership Camp! Members of the Hands4Hope Youth Leadership Team receive ongoing leadership development opportunities, coaching and support.

Camp provides an opportunity for Hands4Hope Youth Leaders to come together to participate in strategic and fun team building, as well as a series of workshops focused on communication, meeting and project development skills, and understanding strengths based leadership. These team building and leadership development opportunities will provide an excellent opportunity for you as a youth leader to build foundational skills essential for leading a successful on-campus service-learning club or after-school committee in the 2024-2025 school year.
