YOUNG PEOPLE AS LEADERS
Since its earliest days, High Rocks has been a place where girls have helped craft our programs and priorities. Select High Rocks girls work as members of a Youth Advisory Board to consult with and advise our board of directors at each board meeting. This talented team of leaders also meet weekly with the director and other staff and alumni to reflect on and help shape the organization.
2015-2016 Youth Advisory Board Members:
Lexie Ruckman, President
Jacqualyn D’Angelo, Vice President
Shayna Hammons, Secretary
Nicole Hall, Information Super Highway
“This community has transformed so many women into becoming bold and assertive leaders in today’s society, including myself. I am incredibly honored and humbled by the experience I have had at High Rocks.” – High Rocks Participant

Our Junior Counselor program is a camp within a camp. The Junior Counselor experience is our ultimate leadership experience for older girls. Girls attend college-level classes, work intensively as a team with staff, help run camp and mentor younger girls. Junior Counselors think more, work harder, and have a greater sense of pride than they thought they could ever have.
It is a challenging, but truly rewarding, transformative experience.
Girls with previous High Rocks experience attending New Beginnings or other programs for a prolonged period of time may apply to be a Junior Counselor. Applications to be a Junior Counselor are due by February 28, 2017!
