At Camp Ubuntu we believe that all our children have something to offer, and none of our children, despite where they fall on the socio-economic ladder, are without problems or needs. We believe we can work together, and heal each other. Cross cultural learning, understanding how other people experience the world, is vital to the success of our program. It is with that in mind that we refreshed our Leadership in Training (LIT) program and launched our Youth Advisory Board (YAB) in 2016.
The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) provides interested high school students an opportunity to get more involved with HRF’s work beyond volunteering at camp. The YAB has their own meetings and creates and implements their own fundraisers. Last year they put on a concert at the Mint, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and a number of lemonade/cake sales. They also assist the foundation with social media and helping identify sponsors for our Pedal on the Pier fundraiser.
