Compass Program

Sustainable Leaders


To inspire and cultivate natural, daily, and sustainable leadership among young women. The leadership skills gained through this program will transcend far beyond the field and will serve as having a lifelong impact on these young womenand the communities surrounding them.

Compass Leaders:
The program will be led by Lauren Cornthwaite and Casey McGowan.

Base Camp:
Participants will meet with Compass Leaders once a month for 9 months (Sept-May) for their “Base Camp” experiences and learning. Base Camp will entail learning and experiencing leadership through different models: classroom setting (workshop-style teaching and discussion), experiential learning activities (low ropes course, etc), and guest speakers (leaders in various fields).

Compass Curriculum 2017-2018:
Throughout the curriculum, references will be pulled from books such as “The Student Leadership Challenge” book by Jim Kouzes and Barry Pozner and “Tuesday Morning Coaching” by David Cottrell as well as the Compass leaders’ past and current experiences.
Teaching and learning will be age-appropriate.

Participants will have one age-group trip experience per year.
