A Meeting of Motivated Young People: Widji Leaders

Written by Andrew Johnson

Widji leaders has had a fantastic start to the year! Widji campers who want to stay connected to the Widji community and participate in service learning projects have joined Amy Hadow and I for two meetings and a retreat this fall. At our meetings we have discussed group goals and expectations, as well as outlined the core concepts of our group. Over Halloween weekend, 13 members of the Widji Leaders piled into a van and headed to camp for our Fall retreat. We spent the weekend clearing ski trails, teambuilding, reflecting and bonding over gallons upon gallons of coca. We have a stellar group of young people and some fantastic events on the calendar, including rock climbing and volunteering with local homework help programs! We also recently elected four student leaders to help guide our activities this year. Congratulations to Andrew Bussen, Grace Tillotson, Betsy Romans and Amanda Garcia!! Amy and I are both looking forward to an awesome year!
