2nd Grade Vacation Bible School Teacher During the first week of summer More
During the first week of summer 2006, I was a Vacation Bible School teacher with my sister. We had about fifteen students, which was a handful. This was the first time I was responsible for a large group of little ones. It was a lot of work, but really fun. I had a good time helping them learn more about their faith. This leadership taught me how to manage groups of children. Before this I was used to managing groups of people that were closer to my age.

Archdiocesan Council for Catholic Youth 2007-2009 As a member of the Archdiocesan More
As a member of the Archdiocesan Council for Catholic Youth, ACCY, I helped plan two major events. The first, was a 3 day Catholic Youth Convention for high school students. The other was a day convention for middle school students. At both events I had to lead a work shop. For the high school, I led a workshop about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. My second year on ACCY I lead a work shop about high school leadership and how you can get involved. For the middle school convention I led a workshop on transitioning to high school. ACCY is a group of 20 Catholic youth from all across Washington. I was so happy when I applied and was chosen for one of the positions. We met 2 times before our statewide high school event. Through my experience on ACCY I learned how important trust is when leading, because we weren't meeting every week we had to trust that everyone was accomplishing what they were responsible for. We sent countless emails back and forth to make sure everyone was on track. Our workshops always went well which proved that we could trust everyone in our group.

World Youth Day 2008 I went to World Youth Day More
I went to World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney, Australia with 15 others from my Church. We spent fifteen days total in Australia, spending time in Wollongong and in Sydney. The trip cost $2,000 a person.We fundraised about 80% of everyones cost. The events we planned, were challenging, but helps us grow as a group. We spent so much time preparing and planning for our trip that we all got to know eachother well before the trip. I was in charge of organizing three of the events that we did. It was challenging because their were so many people who wanted to be involved. This was a challenge because I had to coordinate many schedules and delegate jobs to individuals who I thought would do well in helping us plan successful fundraisers.

Youth Leadership Team  My youth group leader wanted to More
 My youth group leader wanted to start a group of youth leaders so members of the youth group could have peers to look to. My youth group leader, the other adult leaders, and the members of the Youth Leadership Team, had a vision of a unified group. We held weekly meetings, to plan events and discuss ways to build a stronger youth group. I learned a lot of from being on this team because I had the opportunity to work with adults for a common goal, which was a first for me. I was used to having adults monitor my leadership groups and mentor us, rather than working together.

ASCEND Leadership Camp ASCEND leadership camp was an amazing More
ASCEND leadership camp was an amazing experience for me. I met a lot of great people and it was where I first realized I wanted to apply to be on the Archdiocesan Council for Catholic Youth. This experience helped me grow in faith and developed my leadership skills. The one tool I really learned that was important was how to keep my morals in my leadership.
