Life Changing Volunteer Opportunities!
Stand UP Foundation is seeking High School Volunteers for the summer camps we run mentoring and leading middle and elementary school students. We host a variety of activities throughout the summer, including partnering up with Blueline Surf and Paddle CO to offer a variety of awesome, fun water sports! Our component of camp includes running different workshops and activities that high school leaders are responsible for leading. To prepare students to run these activities, Stand UP hosts a mandatory leadership training, which will be taking place the weekend of June 2nd-5th.
Although it is not mandator to commit to being a student leader all year long, training is a prerequisite. This is a great opportunity to improve and expand leadership qualities, gear up for an incredible summer of volunteering as well as get to know all our current members. It's a great intro to what we are so excited to do.. all year long!
All of our volunteers are asked to attend this training to not only build rapport with other leaders, learn how we conduct our activities, understand our expectations, learn skills for helping guide our retreaters, but we also cover water safety with Blueline Surf and Paddle Co. and make sure everyone is CPR certified. Training is designed to address topics we will be covering throughout each week, activities to practice guiding, role playing, encouraging 100% participation of all retreaters and most of all of course having fun! All leaders complete training with a close relationship and trust with the other leaders, feel prepared for the weeks that lie ahead and are ready to lead the summer of their lives. Training also includes innovative workshops from presenters in the community on topics related to social and emotional health (all topics are chosen by current members).
Training also includes our strategic planning workshops where we plan for the upcoming school year and all the events we will hold. This is a CRITICAL time for our members to attend.
Training weekend will also have alumni workshops on transitioning to college and host our Senior Oscars Party as we send off our incredible Seniors to the next journey of their lives!
