About

National Teen Leadership Program is seeking a volunteer on-site nurse for our 3 day leadership camp in southern California, at Chapman University, July 6-8.

For 26 years, since 1992, the National Teen Leadership Program has lead by its motto - developing the leader within every teen today -- for a better world tomorrow! Over 17,000 teens have come to our program from across the US and parts of the world. We deliver an amazing positive environment during our 3-day leadership camps with small group sessions working on team building (led by adult alumni of our program), motivational speakers, workshops, ROPES course, a dance, and an awards ceremony celebrating our teens, while providing these youth a glimpse of the college campus experience. We sincerely believe that given the right positive environment, openness, and encouragement, every young person has the potential to boost their confidence and self esteem, realize their potential, and create positive change in their communities -- extending to the world around them. We support social and emotional skills development, character building, and overall leadership education in our high energy camps. We are also looking to develop our Traveling Workshop Series, Campshot (1-day snapshot of camp), and After school Program Modules. Though based in Sacramento, California, this year our 3-day camp is happening in southern California at Chapman University July 6-8, in Orange, CA.

NTLP is immediately seeking a volunteer licensed nurse who can be our on-site camp nurse for our 3 day program, and help us ensure the health and safety of the teens at our camp. Perks will be you are welcome to partake and see our three motivational speakers, interact with our phenomenal group of teens and alumni, and help us create a positive and welcoming environment, and have meals and lodging taken care of.
