Being a counselor is about learning skills, developing character and making friends while leading peers to do the same. But few environments are as special as Blue Ridge Leaders’ School, where teens become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Leaders’ School teaches self-reliance, an appreciation of healthy living and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership. Blue Ridge Leaders’ School counselors are dedicated to making sure BRLS is an amazing experience for every teen.
The 2018 Class of counselors has been selected and we will be working hard to be ready for each and every Leader that arrives on the Mountain on Saturday, June 16. This group of 81 teens will participate in an online training that includes child abuse prevention training, devotions, homesickness and more.
We know how important counselors are to the Blue Ridge experience and cannot wait to meet our groups and begin building lasting memories together.
