Teen TiLT volunteers needed

-A A +A

Are you a teen between the ages of 13-18? Do you enjoy leading and teaching children 5-12 years of age? Do you take pride in your county and want to find ways to help? Do you enjoy being involved with other peers that have the same common goal: to grow in leadership, citizenship, learn new life skills and share what you learn with others? Are you interested in growing your volunteer hours for college, job searches and scholarship opportunities?
If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, TiLT might be for you.
TiLT (Teens in Leadership Training) is part of Brunswick County 4-H Teen Council and trains 4-H teens to teach youth in Brunswick County. Its primary purpose is to help plan and implement the Summer Fun programs, as well as help 4-H staff and provide school enrichment to area elementary and middle schools.
The TiLT program will take place at Fort Caswell at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly the weekend of Feb. 10-12. Workshops will include: Team and Leadership Building, Time Management and Camp Planning, as well as being introduced to “kits in a box” used to teach parts of Summer Fun Workshops and/or school enrichment.
When signed up for TiLT, you are also considered part of the 4-H Teen Council and are required to attend at least three more meetings or events to stay eligible and receive funding towards other 4-H teen events.
Cost is $125 and covers lodging, food, drink, a TiLT retreat T-shirt and workshops. A letter can be provided to help with sponsorship. A $15 non-refundable deposit will secure a spot. Sign up quickly, as spaces are going fast. There is only room for 12 young ladies and 12 young men.
