Co-Directors (2 positions available) Skill Set: A Program for Young Adults 20-30
Launched four years ago, Skill Set is a peer-led program that was created to help young people to make the transition into adulthood by giving them a chance to ask themselves how they want to live and what kind of world they want to live in. The program offers a three-day January session that is focused on a single topic and how it relates to young people’s lives. (In past years, the topic has been “Work,” “Home,” and “Feminism for a New Generation.”) In June, the program offers a six-day summer camp-like experience devoted to reflection, dialogue, learning and teaching new skills, and play.
