Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Too often our society thinks training ends with a certificate. Youth need to know that learning is a life-long endeavor, that leadership is something they can practice in all areas of their life. We equip teens with the interpersonal, leadership, and social skills necessary to be successful now and later.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

White Stag Sierra Leadership Development

White Stag is a co-ed leadership camp presented by Boy Scouts of America, Venture Crew 122. Since 1958 White Stag has been training young men, and since 1975 young women, to be effective leaders. Operated as a multi-level program, every youth is presented with challenges geared to his/her age and experience.

White Stag is unique: youth 10 to 18 years of age are challenged to work in groups to solve interesting problems and learn leadership skills. Camp is a wilderness adventure of hiking, backpacking, swimming, camp fires, cooking, eating great food with new friends, storytelling, ceremony, legend, and history in a high adventure environment.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents (13-19 years)

Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We strive to instill in youth the desire to serve and lead in their communities. We seek motivated youth who want to make a difference and equip them with 11 basic leadership skills. We require participants to complete a Leadership Growth Agreement in which they map out a plan to take what they've learned and apply it where they live. We encourage them to step outside their comfort zone and make a difference. <br/><br/>The 11 leadership skills are fundamental to working successfully in any environment both as a youth and an adult. Alumni report that they are quickly able to implement their communication, planning, evaluation, and other skills in the working world.<br/><br/>Rather than dramatically grow the number of attendees, we want to grow the capability of those who attend.

We develop year-round programs to help youth learn leadership that they are required to apply in their home communities. We focus on key programs that allow youth to interact more effectively with their peers and mentor adults. We train adults in the methods and principles of leadership development for youth and encourage them to apply these in their home communities. <br/><br/>We are focusing on specific high-adventure skills that help youth experience themselves in new ways, that help them safely move out of their comfort zone. We are developing new programs that help teens expand their estimation of what they are capable of and recognize them for their personal growth.

Our program is a continuation of the original White Stag Youth Leadership program commenced in Monterey California in 1958. Many of our adult staff were candidates and youth staff in earlier years and have remained leaders in the Boy Scouting program. With this history and this experience, we can and do continue to improve the program to meet current needs of youth leaders.

We have set a goal of adding one new high adventure program over each of the next five years. We are evaluating our success based on the number of attendees who complete these specialized courses during our summer camp program. We are also seeking ongoing feedback from community leaders about the impact the youth are having in their home communities.

We have met and exceeded our goals to expand our program by recruiting and training additional parent volunteers and to grow the attendance of our youth leadership training program. We are continuing to developing new program components that enable youth to try new skills in safe environments.
