Cayman: YMCA and Saxon partner to offer Teen Summer Leadership Programme


Pin It

The YMCA of the Cayman Islands and Saxon Insurance are partnering together to offer “Teen Lead On”, a leadership programme for 15 teens ages 13 to 17 taking place from 17 to 21 August. Comprising a variety of workshops and seminars, Teen Lead On will utilise the Ropes Challenge Course and other adventure-based elements across the island to provide teens with specialty leadership training. Teens will also be provided with ongoing volunteer opportunities that both serve the community and further develop their leadership competencies. In an effort to remove financial barriers, participation fees will be covered in full by Saxon.

Interested teens will have to complete a short, written application and go through an interview process in order to be considered for the course. Participants who successfully complete the programme will receive an official YMCA Leadership Certificate that will assist with school and job applications. Additionally, the cohort will be provided with opportunities to volunteer within YMCA programmes, with an expectation that they serve a minimum of 40 hours within 6 months of programme completion. Volunteer opportunities include after-school, day camp, sports, ropes course and swim lessons.
