Los Angeles Unified School District's Fundraiser:

GEAR UP 4 LA Mentor Rope Challenge Course

Los Angeles Unified School District's Photo

THE STORY:

GEAR UP 4 LA’s Mentor Program would like to take 120 active Mentors to complete a Challenge Course on two separate sessions through UCLA Recreation’s Ropes Course. Teams work together to successfully overcome the challenges presented by a team of experienced leaders. Students learn concepts such as team dynamics, effective communication, and decision making. Discussion on resolution, leadership, and guidance are woven into discussions following the completion of each element.

The challenges posed by the ropes courses offer students an opportunity to take on a leadership role, and to work together as a team. Students become more assertive and confident, and this can translate into the student’s role in the classroom, as well as their role within their own circle of peers. Through Challenge Courses, students’ communication skills are sharpened, as they must rely on each other to problem solve during challenges. Students also bond over shared struggle as they need each other to be successful in completing elements. Ultimately, ropes courses are a dynamic and fun training tool, designed to help individuals and teams maximize their leadership potential. For more information on GEAR UP 4 LA and our mentor program, please visit gearup4la.net.
