“Becoming a Strong Leader”

LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco is proud to present the third installment of its Future Leaders series with Transition Summit 2014: Becoming a Strong Leader. Adhering to our 4T Philosophy: THINK, TRAIN, TRANSFORM, and THRIVE, LightHouse’s Youth Services Program is once again offering this intensive three day workshop to blind and low vision youth and young adults between the ages of 16-25 who are enrolled with the Department of Rehabilitation.

Building upon skills and concepts introduced at Transition Summits 2012 and 2013, this exciting three-day workshop at our beautiful Enchanted Hills Camp promises to be another enriching and educational experience for anyone interested in learning the skills necessary for vocational, academic, and personal success. Participants will explore, discuss, and engage in a wide variety of fun, yet meaningful and relevant interactive activities covering such topics as: leadership, management, supervision, ethics, strategic planning, advanced problem solving and critical thinking skills, advanced interpersonal skills, mentoring and more. Transition Summit 2014 is an important event you don’t want to miss!
