Our annual Leadership Development Center (LDC) returns this year with a 4-day conference at Loma Mar’s Redwood Glen Camp & Conference Center brought to you by the American Red Cross Northern California Coastal Region. This year's event provides opportunities for youth ages 13-18 to develop and cultivate core leadership skills such as teamwork, public speaking and diversity awareness, while adapting to current social distancing practices.
Through presentations and small group discussions, LDC delegates will participate in workshops on Red Cross topics including disaster preparedness, diversity, international services and more. We hope to build a deeper understanding of our communities and help grow participants into young leaders.
Apply here by May 15th to receive your packet in the mail with resources to be used throughout the camp. For any questions or concerns, please reach out to email@example.com.
If you are entering grades 9–12 and interested in learning new skills and meeting Red Cross youth, apply today!
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
“If I were to describe LDC in one word, it would be ‘community’ because everyone is so involved and we’re just like a family.”
“I decided to participate in LDC because I’m part of the Red Cross club at my school, and I thought this would be a great way to meet Red Crossers outside of my school so that in the future we could do events with each other.”
“I liked the part where we did Search and Rescue because I learned a lot about how to do CPR, first-aid, and how to react when there is an emergency.”
“The connections are the things you remember. No matter where the camp is, and no matter what activities are there, you remember the friendships and conversations, and those things really last.”
“Learning about different people in this kind of environment where everyone is close really brings out a new perspective and you start to look at other people differently.”
“I think I’ll take away a lot of different skills from LDC; communication skills, social, skills, and leadership skills most definitely.”
“This is a great opportunity for you to get out of your comfort zone.”
