Come learn what it means to build and define leadership in the 21st century by thinking outside of the box. Learn how top businesses are rethinking their creative jam sessions to stay relevant and innovative!
Workshop 2 – Diversity, Inclusion, & Intersectionality: Teen leaders & Social Justice
Teens will take a deep dive into how teen leaders can be agents of positive change and influence in their community, starting with a look at our Camp Fire programs. We will look into and talk about how Camp Fire programs encourage inclusion, and how we can use these specific skills and experiences in our everyday life to combat everyday injustice and exclusion. We will talk at length about how we can use different leadership and collaboration skills to reach the same goal of inclusion at school, home, sports teams, or community centers.
Workshop 3 – Mindfully Yours
Teen leaders, please join us as we learn and develop ways to find clarity and peace in the stressful times of our lives. Through this workshop we will explore the positive benefits of practicing mindfulness along with adapting a growth mindset into our daily lives.
