Event Purpose

This initiative aims to train facilitators/leads required for launching of 1-2 youth engagement IMPACT Clubs at ROCO Chicago, supported by the New Horizons Foundation. The clubs are designed to empower youth by offering them opportunities for personal, community, and global development through experiential education.


About IMPACT Clubs

Participants in the Impact Clubs, age 10-18, will learn how to build life skills through hands-on activities related to environmental protection, entrepreneurship, education, and civic engagement, fostering confidence, independence, resilience, and compassion.

  • Inspire and be a role model for the youth: Being their guide and mentor on their learning journey.
