One Great River: a leadership program for 15 Magnet students that is fully funded

Your teacher is happy to be able to recruit 15 Caddo Magnet Students to join the One Great River program. These 15 students and 2 adult staff/volunteers will be engaged in a series of outdoor adventure training events including:

A weekend team building retreat
A confidence building wall climbing day at Centenary College
A high ropes challenge course at YMCA Camp Forbing
A mountain biking and kayaking day at Lake Bistineau State Park

They will also be trained to present mini-lessons in physical exercise and healthy eating to younger youth.

The program will kick off on April 20th at LSUS with the students taking a pre-survey (Pennington Biomedical Research Center youth survey) and a pre Physical Fitness test (Fitness Gram). Once they have completed the survey and fitness test, we will keep them at LSUS the remainder of the day to do the Team Building and Trust activity. We are currently working on the scheduling of the additional activities.

Over the years I have seen terrific responses about the One Great River program from Magnet students and parents. It will be worthwhile in the short run and in the long run, as you prepare your portfolio of activities for entrance to a top college.
