BENEFITING: A FLORIDA OUTDOOR CENTER INC
AFLOC realized the need for quality programs for Teens that get them outdoors, active and teaches them life lessons without being preachy or condescending. Our Junior Guide Leadership Training Program Mission is “Giving teens the skills and experiences they need to be the next generation on leaders, teachers, and conservationists. Guiding the program participants to find their passion and to develop plans for them to learn more and teach from that passion.” The program takes teens outdoors, builds a foundation of respect while discovering and experiencing nature on adventures. There are several youth groups we have been asked to partner with to run this leadership program but they do not have all the funds to pay the participants fees. And we want to be able to offset the cost. The course is $180 per teen and that covers 18 training sessions, 2 nights of camping, getting certified in Wilderness and Remote First Aid with American Red Cross, a program t-shirt and food.
