Mont Lawn City Camp's program Leadership Academy is helping at-risk youth ages 13-16 in New York City break the cycle of poverty, transcend cycles of limited opportunity and develop into morally grounded, academically accomplished leaders of tomorrow.
Volunteers meet for large group sessions one Saturday per month in East Harlem or the South Bronx which involves worship, games, a message, and small group discussions. Every month the program also has an enrichment day which can be a trip or special event. Mentors meet with their kids on their own time throughout the month as their schedules allow.
Orientation and training will take place at 2-day retreat at Mont Lawn Camp in the Poconos (Sept 15-16, departing at 6pm Saturday and returning at 3pm on Sunday). Mentors are strongly encouraged to attend. The first session with the kids will be Saturday, September 30.
Before you attend the training, you will need to complete the mentor application, and be interviewed, which you will receive in your confirmation email after you request information below.
