What We Do

Riley’s Way first annual Youth Leadership Retreat will be held September 20 - 22, 2019 at Timber Lake Camp in Shandaken, NY. We are excited to bring together 90 young women from high schools around the U.S. to create meaningful connections with their like-minded peers. By providing skill-building sessions and space for teen-led workshops, the Youth Leadership Retreat will empower and inspire attendees to serve as kind leaders and change agents in their communities.

Throughout the course of the weekend, attendees will participate in team-building activities; skill-building workshops, including communication techniques, relationship building, and action planning; teen-led conversations and workshops; and camp activities, such as hiking, arts and crafts, dance class, and a ropes course. There will also be professional development workshops provided for adult attendees.

Through the Youth Leadership Retreat, teens will:

• Join a community of like-minded peers and create meaningful relationships

• Gain leadership skills, including communication, relationship building, and action planning

• Be able to implement a project in their community that creates a lasting, positive change
