Youth Leadership Program

Youth Leaders

This is a closed program where youth are selected based on attendance, internalization of skills, and good decision making.

Many times we have youth returning year after year to join our programs. Some of these youth who demonstrate good decision-making and life skill application are selected to become “youth leaders”. These youth leaders assist program staff and eventually start leading activities and demonstrations for the other youth. This has been an excellent way for the youth to put into practice what they have learned in our programs. Youth Odyssey also trains the youth leaders in day-to-day activities, how to belay participants on the ropes course, and how to instruct their peers on program safety and internalization. This sub-program of the Adventure Challenge Program has been highly successful.
