Wake Up Students!!
If you’re in Grades 6 thru 12 and were thinking … “why would I want to go with my parents to Awakening this year?” … we’ve got news for you! Every year we design programs that are relevant, challenging and FUN for all ages!
On Saturday we meet up during the day for a variety of events including games on the lawn and group games as well as student-specific sessions. In the evening, dress with your best and sit at one of the ‘teen tables’ for the black-tie dinner!
Two outstanding professionals, Lucas and Thea Ramirez, lead the teen sessions. Lucas and Thea have a passion for our country especially as relating to students and the next generation of leadership that the youth represent. They bring to Awakening an energy and focus that broadens, challenges and sharpens minds.
Lucas, who serves on the Awakening Advisory Board, is presently the Executive Director of The Gathering Place (www.thegp.org), a non-profit specializing in leadership development programs for Middle School, High School and College age students.
Thea is founder and CEO of Adoption-Share (www.adoption-share.com), a web based tool designed to foster efficiency and communication in the adoption community.
Awakening is a FAMILY event and we are pleased to provide age-appropriate sessions for all individuals who are attending Awakening (three years old or older). Many of our young adults first came to Awakening as teens and have returned consistently through the years! We hope you will become part of the Awakening tradition!
