Elijah is facilitating the GLOW and BRO Camps in 2018.
The Northern and Upper East Regions' Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) and Boys Respecting Others (BRO) youth development camp will provide a safe environment for youth to learn about themselves, to build self-confidence, and to gain leadership skills that will allow them to excel in the classroom and become leaders in their communities. The camp will include young women and men from various communities in the Northern and Upper East Regions, Peace Corps Volunteers, and various local resource persons. Campers will be from the Junior High School level, with group leaders from upper Senior High School level or youth adults. The participants will be involved in discussions and activities, focusing on their self-confidence, self-worth, decision making, goal setting, stigma reduction towards deaf students by having approximately 15 deaf campers, being a good leader, gender equality, and various health subjects (that is., sexual health, personal hygiene, good nutrition, malaria prevention). The students will become peer educators and will take these newly learned skills back to their respective communities and share the lessons they have learned with other youth, allowing the camp to have a broader impact on the regions. The community hosting the conference will provide accommodation, as well as translators and peer camp facilitators to assist with sessions and camp sessions and activities. We expect around 80 boys and girls to attend the camp.
