What do attendees say about Challenge Day? People say they had a lot of fun, it opened their eyes, they laughed, they cried, they saw others in a new light, felt more connected and alive. They'll say that they want to go again.
Challenge Day is free, held in the gym, and lunch is provided. Everyone (students, teachers, parents, staff) is welcome to register. Space is limited, so register early. If you attended Challenge Day before, you are eligible to be a Teen Leader.
Parent Volunteers are crucial for the success of the day. No training is necessary other than the morning check-in meeting. To volunteer or ask questions please email: Richard Prinz.
