This intensive program is a great way for experienced Ekone teens to take on a new level of independence and leadership.
A few years ago Ekone staff realized that there should be a way for Ekone teens to stay connected to Summer Camp even if they weren't interested in becoming camp staff. And so, we created a youth volunteer program to make that happen! We realized that "youth volunteers" didn't convey the level of leadership these youth are taking on, so we renamed it the Service & Leadership Intensive to more accurately describe the hard work these teens are putting in. This program is for teens 14-19 who want to continue to participate in the Ekone community while working super hard and learning invaluable skills.
These teens will work closely with Ekone staff to tackle ranch projects and keep everything running smoothly. They do everything from gardening, land stewardship projects, cooking, organizing, fixing broken things, building new things, and everything in between!
