Junior Leader Program


Teenagers entering 8th grade or higher have an opportunity to take part in the Adventures Day Camp while learning job skill that can help them with future employment opportunities. The Junior Leader Program provides participants with much more than a summer volunteer opportunity. Training Sessions are structured with group discussion and practical activities. There is no fee associated with participation.

  •  Topics include:  leadership, professionalism, teamwork, conflict management, decision making, time management, goal setting, and practical skills.
  • Mandatory Junior Leader Orientation will be on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 from 12-2pm in the Kids K Room at the Benicia Community Center (370 East L Street)

  •  Training Sessions: Junior Leaders are expected to attend all training sessions and to volunteer 8-15 hours per week. Hours are earned, not guaranteed.
  •  Volunteer Dates: June 19 - August 2;  Training begins the second week of Adventures Day Camp.
