The Franciscan Life Center is offering a leadership-training program for young people ages 13 and 14. This exciting weeklong program involves experiential and interactive learning. The participants will experience low and high outdoor challenge course activities, as well as participate in group discussions and team building exercises. Areas of focus will include communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving and building self-esteem.
The Challenge Course facilitator is Dr. Thomas Finn, a licensed clinical psychologist on staff at the Franciscan Life Center. Franciscan Sisters and Brothers of the Eucharist assist Dr. Finn with the Challenge Course activities.
