Learning to Lead

Camp: Grab the Torch


Forget Rockefeller. Founded in 2007, the Grab the Torch summer camp for leadership, philanthropy and ethics has begun training the next generation of do-gooders. In August, high school teens from all across the Northeast will spend a week attending talks and workshops geared to help them navigate the wide-ranging world of nonprofits. The program aims to help students build a foundation of useful knowledge, so they can take volunteering to the next level. Full and partial scholarships are available.

Grab the Torch: August 12-17, Bishop Booth Conference Center, 20 Rock Point Circle, Burlington, $950. Info, grabthetorch@gmail.com, grabthetorch.org.
