Inspire The Youth, Impact the World.

 

What does “Inspire the Youth, Impact the World” mean?
We here at the COMO feel that the best way to change the future for the better, is to inspire the youth of today to create change and impact the world in a positive way.

The Junior Leadership Program is geared towards youth entering into 8th grade in the fall. The training session is organized to build leadership, shape character and to challenge the participants to become responsible for themselves, among their peers and within the community. Throughout the week of training several guest speakers will come in to talk about respect, trust, fairness, mentoring young kids and much more.

During training week, participants will become familiar with the Positive Youth Development Model as well as the policies and procedures that we use in our camp. After completing the week of training each Junior Leader will be required to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours at the COMO over the Summer. Junior Leaders will be working both with counselors, campers, and COMO staff in a number of enriching opportunities.

If you are a returning Jr. Leader or have other questions, please contact the Como's main office or Contact Joseph Trelli at 860-535-2476 or j.trelli@thecomo.org
