CEED’s Leadership Training Summer Nature Experience
About CEED’s Leadership Training Summer Nature Experience
CEED’s new leadership program for teens (grades 8-11) is taught by an award-winning science and leadership educator, Michael Polochack. The program is based on proven curriculum that show that when young people learn about nature in a creative, immersive way, and then apply their new knowledge to teach others, they gain long-term life skills that can influence the rest of their academic careers and adult lives.
How Does Your Child Benefit?
Your teen will work directly with the Leadership Training educator and then coach younger children in our main summer nature experience program. The result is a cure for summer boredom – a fun, active day that leaves a lasting impression on each young person’s knowledge and appreciation of nature, and their competence to participate in their own education and that of others.
How Do You Benefit?
The Leadership Training program is a way to contribute to your child’s growth over the summer weeks, and ensure they aren’t bored and frustrated. They will return each day physically challenged and energized about what they are learning and doing. They’ll practice serving others and taking responsibility for the welfare of others. Successful completion of the program also results in a Leadership Training Certificate that can be listed as both service and leadership experience on college applications, to improve your child’s college admission and scholarship opportunities.
CEED’s series of conversations with scientists and naturalists continues with a unique meeting of three distinguished scientists.
Sally Wellinger, our part-time Executive Director, will expand her role to full-time as of tomorrow, July 1. Please join us in congratulating Sally!
We’ve developed an innovative program to help young people develop while learning about the environment and how to share new knowledge with younger people.
