Challenge Day Volunteers Needed

Adult Supervisor Challenge Day_2019
The Friends of Gibraltar in partnership with Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, and Gibraltar High Schools is excited to be bringing a National program back to Door County high schools that focus on social and emotional wellness for teens, CHALLENGE DAY.
 
The program will take place at:
 
Sturgeon Bay High School on December 9
 
Sevastopol High School on December 10
 
Gibraltar High School on December 11
 
We are looking for community leaders who work with teens to take part in the day as volunteers. Please read the attached invitation!
 
Volunteering takes place from 7:30AM-4:30PM and volunteers have to be able to commit to the entire day. 
 
The program requires a set student to adult ratio of 4 students to 1 adult. The schools will have a maximum of 100 students participating at each school. The school uses as much school staff as possible to participate with the students but each school needs 5-10 community member volunteers as well to meet the ratio. This is a great event to build/strengthen relationships with high schools.
 
Please watch this short video about Challenge Day to understand better what the day is all about and what it will look like. https://www.challengeday.org
