What is something you want to accomplish this year - Learning a new skill? Hosting a community event? Changing the world through a global effort? This year’s Launch Retreats will inspire and help you find your true passions, teach you how to build your network and utilize your peers to accomplish your goals, and push you to take action in creating a plan to see it through.
Each event has a specific focus - attend just one for a more targeted experience, or attend all three for a well-rounded year. By attending all three retreats, you will gain powerful skills in pursuing your passions by continuing conversations and linking ideas from the retreats that came before.
INSPIRE Retreat - October 19-20, 2019
It all starts with a spark. Your personal motivations and values are what will guide you through life. Discovering them is the start. Leaders use their values to make decisions every day, and by knowing yourself and knowing what inspires you, you’ll be able to move forward and change the world.
The overnight Inspire Retreat will guide you in finding what you care about and why it matters to you. You’ll be inspired by our speakers, stories and experiential activities. Then, we’ll push it all back to you and help you articulate your ideas.
This overnight Retreat will be hosted at Camp Catron in Nebraska City, October 19–20. Check-in starts at 12:45pm, and activities will start at 1pm Saturday, October 19. The retreat ends at 2:30pm Sunday, October 20. Event registration is $80, which includes a LeaderKit and all meals. You will receive a detailed email prior to the Retreat. Full scholarships are available during registration. This Retreat is open to students in grades 6-12.
BUILD Retreat - January 4-5, 2020
You know yourself and you have an idea. Now what? Leaders can’t make a change alone. Your idea won’t go far if you don’t have a roadmap to follow and others to join your cause.
The overnight Build Retreat is a major networking and project planning event. We’ll use ideas that you’ve recently discovered or have had for years and help you build a plan to make them happen. By working alongside other world-changers with their own passions and projects, you’ll learn to better communicate and assemble a squad of supportive peers who want to help you succeed.
This overnight Retreat occurs January 4-5, 2020 at Camp Kitaki in Louisville, NE. Check-in starts at 12:45pm, and activities will start at 1pm Saturday, January 4.

ACTIVATE Retreat - March 14, 2020
Time to put your plan into motion. With a polished idea and a rallied team, you’re ready to make things happen. The possibilities to prompt change are endless when you have an intentional system in place.
We will spend the morning walking through examples of successful community projects and honing in on your own plan. In the afternoon, we’ll dive into real-life community service efforts to illustrate what your passion projects could lead to. This hands-on volunteer work will create instant change in our communities now, and inspire long-term change in you.
