Growth of the Natural Leaders Network: Fresh Tracks and the Regional Legacy Camp LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available
The Natural Leaders Legacy Camps convene young leaders, training them in community organizing, leadership development, and using personal narrative to create change. Find out how Regional Legacy Camps empower leaders close to home, working with local organizations to connect and support youth in their communities and regions. This session is an introduction to the growth and potential of the Natural Leaders Network through Fresh Tracks and the Regional Legacy Camp model. President Obama’s 2015 visit to Alaska spurred a call-to-action that, in turn, inspired Fresh Tracks Leadership Expeditions, a cultural exchange program that enables young adults from urban, rural, and indigenous communities to see the world through new eyes, to appreciate different perspectives, and to understand their own abilities to make a positive impact on their communities.
