Pre-Teen Youth Leadership Weekend
16 & 17 May



Pre-Teen Youth Leadership Weekend:
This weekend will provide an opportunity to
meet and work with our Guard Pre-Teen Youth
for minimum cost.
The weekend will expand our Guard Youth’s skills in communication, resilience, and critical thinking.
During the end-of-training wrap-up, 
the youth will be able to provide feedback about
the training, what they learned,
and what the CYP can provide going forward.

The main focus of the weekend will be a
Camp Robinson service project planned, designed,
and implemented by our Guard Pre-Teens.
The project will be one that the weekend participants
can return and see growth from year to year.

A few examples of such obligations you may be protected against are: Outstanding credit card debt, Mortgage payments, Pending trials, Taxes, and Terminations of lease. For more information on these important SCRA changes.
