Leadership center seeks applicants

PARSONS?- College students looking to challenge themselves and grow in an environment with the power to positively impact young lives will want to check out Horseshoe Leadership Center.

“We’re looking for college-age students who want to use their skills, energy and passion for shaping a better world by influencing today’s teens and children,” said David Cooper, Horseshoe director.

“Horseshoe summer camp counselors make all the difference in the lives of campers,” he continued.

“Yes, Horseshoe is fun, friends and all the great times that happen at camp, but it is so much more. Each week adds experiences to help our campers become all they can be, with an ultimate goal of returning home ready to serve others and build better futures for all,” Cooper said.

Horseshoe’s summer season includes nationally recognized teen civic leadership and entrepreneurship camps, Adventure Camp for 7- to-12-year-olds, and Youth Opportunity Camps for low-income boys and girls.

Summer residential AmeriCorps members build on prior experience and develop new skills to help teens and children become more productive citizens and always find something more within themselves in the process. Summer positions provide a living allowance, an AmeriCorps Education Award to eligible summer AmeriCorps members, meals, and lodging.
