The Leadership, Experience and Adventure Program is a weeklong course for youth ages 15 and 16. LEAP participants live, learn, work, and play together, forming a close-knit group within the larger community of Sorrento Centre. LEAP fosters personal, spiritual, and professional growth in leadership skills and work experience. Participants will be involved in a variety of fresh, exciting spiritual practices and engaging workshops and activities. LEAP includes daily free time, opportunities to relax and to enjoy beautiful Sorrento Centre.
This is the second year Mark and David will co-lead the LEAP program. They look forward to supporting participants to connect with each other and collectively to learn how to lead with compassion and love as children of God. There will be sessions on leadership style, managing conflict, communication, and “growth mindset” ‘from a Christian perspective.
There will be hands-on opportunities to work and connect with the Sorrento youth staff and co-lead children’s activities and programs.
We hope to laugh, have fun, reflect, and discover God’s call for all of us to grow as Christian leaders.
