From the “March for Our Lives” movement in the United States to Malala Yousafzai taking a stand in Pakistan, youth have been stepping up to become the next generation bold, changemakers. The Action Forum Youth Camp aims to empower participants' children to begin to develop their own leadership skills and consider how they can be change agents in their communities.
Offered concurrently to the adult programming, the youth camp is grounded in the Aspen way. Youth from around the world will participate in classic, text-based seminar sessions, action oriented workshops, and some intergenerational dialogues all while taking the time to explore the surrounding beauty of Aspen. The camp is the perfect way to bring the Fellowship to the entire family. Both the adult and youth participants will receive the same readings, meaning that the lessons from the Action Forum can be shared by parents and children alike.
The Youth Camp is intended for young people between the ages of 10-18. We anticipate 120 youth participants from 30+ countries. The Action Forum's Youth Camp will offer:
Readings-based seminar sessions facilitated by the Aspen Global Leadership Network’s Moderator Corps and select guest Moderators. These sessions will offer participants the opportunity to reflect on their own values and passions while learning from their peers from around the world in socratic dialogue.
Programming designed to help empower participants to be become change agents in their own communities. Through art, reflection, and collaboration, participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can transform their core values into action.
Excursions exploring the beautiful, surrounding wilderness of Aspen, Colorado.
The cost to attend is $1,000 per child. Space is limited, so be sure to sign your child up during registration, which opens on February 6, 2019 at 12:00 PM EST.
