Do you want to contribute to your community? Are you interested in harnessing your leadership potential? Are you looking for opportunities to help younger kids learn about life on a farm and working together? If so, join our Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program at Wolfe’s Neck Farm this summer. LITs help us cultivate the land we farm and the youth we educate at our Summer Day Camp program.
A Bit About Our Leaders-in-Training Program
Our LIT program is for perfect for adolescents interested in stepping into leadership roles—at school, on our farm, and in the community. It’s a great choice for campers who have aged out of Farmward Bound and are interested in becoming Junior Counselors at Wolfe’s Neck Farm.
What are LITs up to?
LITs will explore the relationships that are at the heart of a successful sustainable farm—within ecosystems, groups, and community—and work to support them. With your Leadership Educators, you’ll delve into group dynamics and what it takes to achieve peak performance. This is experiential education, so you’ll do more than talk about leadership—you’ll practice it by working with younger campers! Our highly skilled Leadership Educators then lead LITs in reflection and feedback, including plans to keep growing. You’ll have numerous opportunities to practice your skills and reflect, so you’ll see growth throughout the week. You’ll also have Leadership Development Sessions with Junior Counselors to dig more deeply into group dynamics, respectful leadership, and professional development. As a team you’ll foster the awareness, confidence, and integrity of effective leadership.
