“LeadGB” Summer Youth Leadership Camp Coming to UW-Green Bay

Posted on 1-11-2024

UW-Green Bay is proud to welcome two popular and new-to-campus youth leadership programs to the University’s summer program line-up. The LeadGB series – LeadGB girls and LeadGB boys will be run by local leaders, Chelsea Faase and Chuck Brehm, known for decades-worth of work in youth leadership.

Both Faase and Brehm have an outstanding record of developing and executing youth leadership programs in the Brown County area, and are thrilled to bring their expertise to campus with these new programs.

The vision of LeadGB is to create a partnership between the area’s successful and diversified male and female leaders and the young people who will one day take their place. Mentorship, storytelling, and confidence building will be the pillars that ensure the future leaders are successful in whatever endeavor they undertake.

Through a combination of challenging hands-on activities, exploration, and developing healthy and positive life choices, the youth within the program will have opportunities to understand who they can grow into as healthy individuals and leaders.

Registration for LeadGB will open on January 23rd, 2024 at noon. Both LeadGB programs will offer two one-week sessions from 8am to 3:30pm daily on the UW-Green Bay Campus. LeadGB girls is for 1st-through-8th-grade girls, and will run June 17th-21st and June 24th-28th, 2024. LeadGB boys is for 4th-through-8th-grade boys, and will run July 8th-12th and July 15th-19th, 2024.
