Strengthen your team by strengthening yourself.
The LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired is proud to announce our annual Youth Leaders Summit, a weekend-long course held at Enchanted Hills Camp. The summit is designed to challenge low vision and blind youth ages 16 to 25 to develop the critical skills needed in order to become a successful team member or team leader.
Alongside peers and mentors, attendees will have the opportunity to role play real world situations and discuss important soft skills concepts such as attitude and perception, effective communication, conflict resolution and problem solving. At the conclusion of the summit, participants will have a better understanding of how to effectively communicate and work well with a team.
