TELEIOS Leadership Development Program


About Teleios

This four week leadership development program is designed for students who have finished grade 10 & 11, who want to know God more, develop a Christ-like character, grow in their leadership skills, and learn practical ways to extend grace and love in their communities.

This program runs twice throughout the summer. It is four weeks in July and four weeks in August. Each month includes 2 weeks of training, team building and mentorship and 2 weeks of in-cabin training with a Sr. Cabin Leader and support of the Teleios Directors.

2018 Dates:

July 1 -July 27

July 29 – August 24

 

Food and lodging will be provided during the weeks and you will go home for the weekends. You will be expected to stay for one weekend and participate in a Splash Camp for young campers. It is critical that you are able to be at camp for the entirety of your Teleios month.

Sponsorship Opportunities:

There is the potential of your registration fees being 100% covered by sponsorship options listed below.

Returning Staff

$150 | | If you have worked at SABC for 6 or more weeks , you qualify for an automatic $150 sponsorship from our Leadership Fund.

Church Partnership

$300 || If your church is able and willing to sponsor you, you will qualify for a matching grant from SABC up to $150.  (Church $150 + SABC $150 = $300)

SABC values the church and understands the importance of partnering with churches to develop Christian leadership in young adults.  As our local churches identify and invest in their young leaders, SABC will honor that investment with a matching grant.

Please note that this is not an agreement that SABC has with area churches nor is it a for sure thing.  It will depend on you inviting and sharing with your church family that this investment into your leadership development is exactly that, an investment, and not something that will be wasted.

SABC provides a sponsorship package that will help you approach your church family to ask them for their help. This could possibly come from a number of areas within your church – for example, a youth camp match fund, or missions fund – so we ask that as you approach your church to join you in this summer, you are prayerful, thoughtful, prepared and creative in your conversation in regards to this partnership.

**If you qualify and receive both grants, admission is free.
