2020 Event Calendar
YOUTH LEADERSHIP RETREAT
October 23rd - 25th, 2020
The Youth Leadership Retreat programs enhance leadership development and reach rural youth. This weekend will be our 7th annual youth retreat at Camp Kieve-Wavus, where youth from Aroostook to York gather to learn and network.
LGBTQ+ youth need support and visible adult LGBT mentors to help them see possibility in their futures and reasons to remain in school. These weekends are life-changing for many, building youth connections and leadership skills.
Next retreat: October 23rd - 25th, 2020. Registration TBA. FMI email firstname.lastname@example.org
