"CA Youth Summit models what we all want deep down - true, real connection. For most of us we never experience that, sometimes ever in a lifetime; and here we get to come together and experience it fully and deeply for 7 days. And hopefully we take back with us the lessons of that connection and create more connection, and more connection and more connection. Because truly deep down that is what we're all wanting - we want to be loved, we want to be accepted, we want to be understood, we want to be safe, we want to feel good about ourselves - and all of these things are a part of true, loving, real connection. That's why Summit is important." Wayne Byrd, 2nd year Youth Counselor We hope you are all feeling connected and loved this holiday season. We thank you for being part of our growing community.

One of our favorite things is to hear from the parent’s of our participants about the impact of their child’s BOLD & GOLD program! Here is a quote from a recent BOLD parent: “My son didn’t just have a ‘great time,’ he came back with a better understanding of himself, a greater appreciation for the beauty and the challenge of the outdoors, and the experiential learning he took part in reminded him that there is nothing as powerful as building human connections, and coming to know, rely on, and appreciate new people. AND he had fun! Thank you!!”

Our final Intrepid Landcare Leadership Retreat for 2018 was hosted on the Central Coast NSW in partnership with Greater Sydney Landcare Network this weekend.
What an incredible bunch of humans who were up for a deeper dive into leadership and personal development in their journey to look after the environment.
Some highlights were looking at the bigger picture of collective impact with local action - we smashed a lot of weeds with NPWS in 3 hours 👊🏽
Finding the importance in slowing down, reflection and connection to nature for our personal health and wellbeing.
Discovering the value of open, honest and sometimes uncomfortable conversations and how that can really move us forward.
And connecting to Country, deeply appreciating the thousands of years of human connection to the land on which we meet, live, work and play, the knowledge and wisdom that exists, and how important it is for us to all work together to protect it into the future. Thankyou Uncle Stu for sharing your journey and beautiful knowledge and wisdom with us.
We welcome Central Coast Intrepid Landcare to the fam, and look forward to an awesome 2019 with more tribes of young leaders doing stuff that matters 👌🏾🌱
So how did these guys end up on the #reelisefilmfestival red carpet?
Jade and Alli were 2018 winners in our REEL Voices competition. It’s a competition to find and support ambassadors online who can help others lead healthy happy 😃 digital lives.
Both created short vids telling us about navigating life online. Jade talked about dealing with trolls and Alli dealt with insta envy and self confidence.
What did they get right?🤔
1. Great relatable topics.
2. Well thought out narrative.
3. Lighting, sound and stability all sorted.🌞🎤
PS You don’t need expensive equipment. A tripod and mount for your iPhone or iPad. Use good natural light if you can. Have the major light source💡behind the camera. Choose a quiet place and think about a microphone. Rode have great ones. (We aren’t sponsored by @rodemic we just love their gear).
4. 👁 👁 They looked directly at the camera and spoke naturally.
5. They were themselves.
It could be you in 2019!!💫💫If you’re 13-24 and love performing and/or creating short videos give it a try. Entry is FREE and you need to submit your 1 minute video by 1 March 2019.
Full T&C are on the competition page at www.reelise.org.au. .
I encourage high school juniors and seniors who live in #Euless to apply for a new youth leadership program offered by the cities of #Euless , #Bedford , and #Hurst , along with the #HEBChamber —Youth in Government.
The program will begin in Jan. 2019 and run through mid-Apr. Participants will meet 8 times, mostly on Mondays from 5:30-7:00 p.m. The program is limited to 15 students—the first 5 to apply from each city will be accepted.
Participants’ involvement can be counted towards community service hours. Here’s the link for more info and how to apply:
Incredible day yesterday inspiring over 200 young people to RAISE THEIR VOICES & rise in the face of adversity to fight for their communities.

Specials thanks to all the volunteers , support team and people behind the scene that made it possible. Lastly, to Mr. Andrew Woods, on continued blessings in being a servant leader & pillar in the Greater Hartford Communities. 📸 @dreh_56ace 🎥 full recap coming soon! #RaisingYouthVoices#YouthLeadership#Summit#LiveToInspire#GreaterHartford#TheGrindNeverStops
New club alert! These ladies are a force of nature and I'm so proud of them! They decided they wanted a voice and a new purpose in our county. They formed their own club, got themselves two club leaders, elected officers, AND planned and hosted an amazing holiday party for the community clubs. They also oversaw the beginning of a community service project. All of it that in just 30 days. 30 days of doing indeed lol. If that doesn't embody the get it done attitude taught in 4-H I don't know what does! They are ROCKSTARS! I'm excited to work with them and see what amazing things they do this year.
Meet the Okaloosa County Clover Connection leadership club.

Several high school students who participated in the Youth Global Citizen (YGC) leadership program helped raise a combined $3,700 towards Friends of the Autism Place (FOTAP), Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central IL (BBBS) and Prairie Pride Coalition (PPC). Yesha Thacker, Mansi Kinikar from NCHS, Mansi Shah from Normal Community West and Shaurya Taxali from U-High were part of the project team that helped raise awareness and contributed $1,050 money to BBBS in summer of 2018. Money raised helped BBBS find a mentor for kids on their waiting list. Per BBBS, it $1,000 for one me tiring match per year.
The quote the team picked - “For it is in giving that we receive” - Francis of Assisi
