An Opportunity to Grow from two different Leadership Programs

Our Leadership Development Program is built on developing a community and the "I AM A GRYPHON" values (be respectful, caring, determined, engaged and authentic). Throughout the program participants are working together in creating their own community to foster and encourage leadership skill development and personal growth through workshops and discussions facilitated by our Gryphon Program Team and Program Directors.

We have designed workshops and activities that are engaging to encourage participants to communicate and collaborate with each other while actively moving and laughing together. Workshops will include topics like self-motivation, working in teams, personal leadership traits, how to lead a group, time management, work opportunities (job search, resumes, interviews), how to be fiscally responsible, public speaking, how to make your voice heard and conflict resolution. Our Leadership staff will present volunteer opportunities and help participants find hours to support their high school volunteer program.  Note: The leadership programs have separate concepts and activities. They are designed for the age group that will be participating in the program.  

Leadership Foundations | 1-week program | Ages 13-15

The program is focused on teamwork and experiential learning through interactive initiatives. Campers will gain an insight into group dynamics and working together with other individuals to problem solve and work in an environment that is respectful of idea sharing. The goal for campers is for individuals to be better prepared for group work at school and how to work with others in a variety of different environments. It will be an engaging week of initiatives and debrief/reflections. We can’t wait to see these individuals taking the first step on the path to being a community leader.

Leadership Development Program | 2-two-week program | Ages 14-16

This summer we are extremely excited to be basing many of our workshops and reflections from The Student Leadership Challenge: Five Practices for Becoming an Exemplary Leader by James Kouzes and Barry Posner. During the two weeks, participants will explore through interactive workshops and experiential activities how to Model The Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart. During the last week of camp, participants will have the option to sign up for volunteer hours to assist with Summer Camp Wrap up.
