Our leadership training program starts with a two-day training meant to provide the skills and knowledge you will need to be a Camp Koru volunteer and possibly a Camp Koru Leader.
Camp Koru Leader-in-Training: Volunteers will learn the role of Camp Co-Lead and/or Camp Leader from every angle. Camp Leaders-in-Training, if given assignment after training, will return to camp to apply skills and knowledge learned during our training program in a hands-on way. This track is specific to the goal of becoming year-round staff at Camp Koru. It will take the place of our previous Ambassador role at camp beginning 2018. Additionally, please keep in mind our limited capacity to send Leaders-in-Training back to camp. With six camps a year, the maximum number of Leaders-in Training we can send back to camp will be six, therefore we will only place 8-12 applicants per training. While this training is required for future volunteers at camp, attending does not guarantee being given a position.
Upon being given an active volunteer opportunity, graduates from the Koru Leadership Program will be asked to commit to a minimum of two camps each year for two years.
Airfare to and from the training is not covered by Project Koru. However, once admitted, you can FUNraise your way to training. Additionally, the first camp airfare is covered by the volunteer. For the second camp, Project Koru will cover airfare. After the second camp, Project Koru will cover your airfare and provide compensation for your time at camp.
Applications for the September 2018 Leadership Training will begin July 18, 2018. All applications received after July 18, 2018, will be reviewed for the next Leadership Training in 2019, due to the volume of applicants, we are unable to make any exceptions to this deadline.
