Future Leaders

Entering Grade 8 to 9

Fostering leadership skills in young adults

Our Future Leaders program offers the opportunity for leadership, training to work with children, and basic job skills.

The program provides young people interested in working with children a meaningful and exciting experience, all within the joyous environment that is Belmont Day Summer Discoveries. Future Leaders work closely with a senior staff member to gain job skills, develop leadership abilities, and problem-solve.

Future Leaders:

  • Participate in leadership development and counseling skills workshops
  • Enjoy activities such as swimming and trips off campus with peers
  • Are assigned to a group where they will work with junior and senior counselors to care for campers
  • Learn how to write a resume, prepare for job interviews, and gain valuable job skills

At no time will Future Leaders be solely responsible for a group. Successful completion of the program provides an advantage to participants who may choose to apply for an intern or junior counselor position at Belmont Day in the future.

The Future Leader program requires a four-week commitment during sessions B (July 9 to 20, 2018) and C (July 23 to August 3, 2018).

This program is by application only. The application process includes:

  • A written application due by January 30
  • An interview with Summer Session Staff to be conducted in February
  • All decisions will be made March 2
