Youth Leadership Training Program Application

Every year we search for 10 of the best past-Campers to be the Youth Leaders for this year’s Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp. Are you one of them?

Overview of the Youth Leadership Training Program Position:

If you are accepted into the Youth Leadership Training Program, you will need to find your way to Medicine Hat during the week before camp in order to begin your training. For the next three days you will participate in leadership and communication workshops that will teach you how to be the best leader you can be. You will also receive first-aid training. You will be transported to camp where you will meet your Campers and get started on helping them create memories that will last a lifetime! You will be responsible for your own ride home after camp.

The Youth Leadership position consists of two parts. First, you are a business helper. As a Youth Leader you will be designated to work with one of the business teams throughout the week. This means working with the Team Leader to help the Campers learn and understand the material presented. You will help your business team generate ideas, plan their business, and ultimately succeed as entrepreneurs for the week. You will also help the Team Leader with whatever they may need in order for your team to succeed.

The second part of your position will be Recreation Helper. As a Recreation Helper, you will work with the other Volunteers to encourage and assist the Campers while they are involved in their recreational and risk-taking activities.

All you have to do now is apply!

Note: The ‘Youth Leadership Training’ positions are not paid positions.
