WCC L.I.T.E. 2016

“Leaders – In – Training – Experience”

For WCC Alumni who are currently in 6th, 7th or 8th grade

L.I.T.E. Picture for Application Package

We are excited to announce our second “Leaders – In – Training – Experience” (L.I.T.E.), an alumni program developed for middle school students to experience a weekend of leadership building skills. We invite your WCC alumni student who is currently in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade to apply. Space is limited as only ten students will be selected to participate in this experiential program with Justin Christensen as the Lead Counselor.

Justin teaches AP Government at St. Ignatius College Preparatory in San Francisco. He recently earned his doctorate in educational leadership and was named one of nine “Educators of the Year”. He wears a hearing aid and a cochlear implant and is an amazing role model for anyone with a profound hearing loss.

The dates for this experience are July 22nd – 24th. The L.I.T.E. staff will include talented graduates of the AG Bell LOFT Program (Leadership Opportunities For Teens), with the support of Kathy Sussman, Executive Director and Ken Levinson, Board President. The L.I.T.E. program activities are designed to promote self-esteem and strengthen leadership skills for middle school students. This experience begins Friday afternoon and concludes on Sunday afternoon with a program for parents. The two evenings will be spent at WCC (boys with Ken and Justin in the MPR, girls with Kathy and female counselors at the Family Center). Participants will experience a variety of team building activities, both on and off campus.

An application is available to download (PDF and Word). Please have your child complete it with your signature and email it to info@weingartencc.org or fax it to (650) 365-7557 by March 31, 2016.

The fee for this phenomenal Experience is $300.00. Limited financial assistance is available.
