Program Description: 

Summer Voyage encourages teens going into grades 6-9 to make their own decisions and learn leadership skills. Youth work together in groups of 15-20 to create a team name and banner. Each team gets a group bank account, with deposits made weekly. Together they research activities, decide what they will do as a group, manage their budgets and choose fun activities in and around San Francisco. Activities are limited only by the budget and the imagination and consensus-building skills of they youth! Past and possible field trips include: Great America, House of Air, Mission Cliffs, museums and local salons for spa treatments! Every Summer Voyage experience culminates with youth-designed showcase – a movie, play, presentation, dance … or  – you decide! –  and a three-day camping trip.  Summer Voyage develops leadership and autonomy in middle school youth. Sumer Voyage helps by teaching consensus, faded facilitation, budget management, presentation skills, project management and working with a theme. June 8-July 17, $200/week. Generous financial aid available.
