SUMMER CAMP FOR TEENS TEACHES PRACTICAL, HANDS-ON LEADERSHIP

Press release from: Managing Ourselves

Acceptance rates to top universities are at an all time low and the competition for students to get into their college of choice is heavy. Students now must not only be able to demonstrate solid academics to admissions counselors but must also demonstrate their leadership skills. Along with conducting themselves in a professional manor, teens are expected to present themselves positively in a variety of new mediums including videos and social media. Colleges including Tufts University and University of Chicago have begun accepting YouTube videos along with a student’s application.

Managing Ourselves is a one-week summer camp held July 15-21, 2012 for teens ages 16-17 years of age seeking to improve their leadership skills and their chances of success not only for upcoming college admission requirements but also in their chosen careers. Students learn directly from management expert John Miller, Ph.D., formerly at Bucknell and Yale, and youth leadership development expert, David Ledgerwood. They will learn about using social media safely and effectively, collaborating in the cloud, professional networking skills, and writing, speaking and presenting for impact. It’s all about learning by doing in a safe, productive and encouraging environment.

Scott, a Managing Ourselves 2011 graduate stated:
“I loved my Managing Ourselves experience. I’d attend again, but I can’t because I got a summer internship with a food distribution company [in London]. When I interviewed the recruiter loved the idea of Managing Ourselves; he asked me a lot of questions about it and I think, ultimately, it helped me get the spot. I also wrote about Managing Ourselves for one of my common app college essays. ”

Christyanna Arnold, parent of a teen who attending Managing Ourselves 2011, wrote on Twitter:
“b4 MO our teen had no idea the how to turn an idea into reality. Now he can count the cost b4 building towrs”
