Young Adult Program

For all teens between the age of 13 to 20 or freshmen in high school to age 20, this event is all about YOU! Become a leader in the community by piloting the Young Adult Program. This program is designed all around the teens and gathering valuable life skills and leadership opportunities! The affected individual does not have to be in the age range for their sibling to attend. The overnight out will provide young adults with a chance to explore the outdoors possibly including zip lining!


Let’s Make History

It's time for you to create history. Take charge of your own life and begin making decisions that will not only better yourself, but your community. Help mold this great program for the young adults to follow in your shoes! Interested in learning about how to share your story to others? Great! Let’s do it! Need to know how to apply for a scholarship? We can help with that too! 

Mentors from across the state of Iowa are extremely excited to join such a great group of young adults and help serve as a tool and resource. The Young Adult Program isn’t just a time to get away and make friends (although that’s a great perk). It’s a time for you to decide what kind of adult you want to be and how you can help your community!
