What is a steward? A steward is someone whose responsibility it is to take care of something. Stewards have a chance to enrich, mentor, and lead while gaining valuable leadership and life skills. At Tollgate Farm Camp, stewards (ages 15-19) and stewards-in-training (ages 13-14) serve in leadership as they mentor peers and campers. 

MSU Tollgate Farm is offering a youth-led virtual winter series for past, present, and future stewards and stewards-in-training. This is a safe place to connect or reunite as a community and to explore resiliency and growth as youth leaders during this time. 

Led by youth and moderated by staff, virtual sessions include ice-breakers or team-building activities as well as panel discussions and exploration of topics of resiliency, mindfulness, and leadership in these covid-adapted times.  

Once registered, watch your email for a zoom invitation. 
Youth-led Tollgate steward and SIT sessions Thursdays, 4 - 5 p.m. EST
February 18, March 18, April 15, May 13
