The Youth LED and VITAL Leadership Retreat

The Youth Leadership Retreat is intended as an opportunity for all program participants to come together and explore challenges, consolidate leadership learnings and expand their personal networks and community connections.

VITAL participants, as part of their program goals, will have input into the design and implementation of the retreat’s leadership goals and activities.  This retreat gives participants the opportunity to connect with each other, practice the skills they developed over the year and reflect on how they will continue to use their newly honed skills after the end of program.
