Leadership Development 2-week Program | Ages 13-15

An Opportunity to Grow from Gryphon Leadership Programs

Our Leadership Programs are 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 guest speakers.  We have designed workshops and activities that are engaging on order to encourage communication & collaboration while actively moving and laughing together. 

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 about how to Model The Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.  This program will assist each individual in their own personal journey of leadership and help them truly recognize their own personal strengths that they can bring to groups in order to support others.  During the last week of camp, participants will have the option to sign up for volunteer hours to assist with Summer Camp Wrap up.

Workshops include:

  • Self-motivation
  • Personal leadership traits, how to lead a group
  • Time Management
  • Work Opportunities (job search, resumes, interviews)
  • Become fiscally responsible
  • Public Speaking, make your voice heard
