Conference & Class Description:
100 Student Delegates, recommended by the faculty of Park and Terrill Middle Schools and St. Bartholomew’s Academy (grades 5-8), participate in an event that develops, reinforces, and promotes leadership skills.
Junior Counselors (JCs) are experienced student leaders from middle and high school that lead Delegate groups through the day's activities.
Senior Counselors (SCs) are high school and college students and community volunteers that facilitate the day’s sessions and handle logistics, security, etc.
A true Leadership Camp - the Junior Counselors coordinate welcoming activities and icebreakers, so that each Delegate gets to better know their fellow group members before the following leadership sessions begin:
· Speaking With Ease! What makes a good speaker? Gain awareness of important principles of effective Public Speaking.
· Effective Communication! Do people listen when you speak? Do you really listen to other people? There is a difference between “hearing” and “listening”. Find out how good a listener you really are.
· Elected to Lead Everyone! Do you really know who your fellow students are, and how does this affect what you think about them and what they think about you? You'll have fun as you find out what "headbands" you would like to wear.
· T.E.A.M. Time! “Together Everyone Achieves More”. What qualities make an effective leader? How do different types of leaders affect group performance? Team Time shows the difference between transactional and transformational leadership.
LTC 100 takes some of the best features of the New Jersey Association of Student Councils (NJASC) four-day Leadership Training Conference (LTC) program held in the summer and condenses them into one day.
This program is cosponsored by the Education Enrichment Foundation
of Scotch Plains-Fanwood and the SPF School District.
