Pathways - Firekeepers
Pathway's youth have the opportunity to return the following year as young leaders in training, with their own stepped leadership programme and hold a key role as 'elder brothers', supporting the new youth, exemplifying the Pathways culture, and providing assistance with many day-to-day camp duties. Returning is an opportunity for them to continue their own personal development while also being in service to the wider camp.
The ‘Fire-Keeper’ role is a parallel process that links with the youth, fathers and facilitators. It is a training programme in it’s own right. It is a chance to step up, be seen and have a stronger voice in the world.
The Firekeeper programme offers leadership training opportunities for the young men who wish to return in future years.
Who's it for?
Firekeepers are Pathways Youth from the previous year's course.
This is a chance to contribute back to the Pathways programme in a role that involves being a mentor to the new Pathways' youth. There are limited places each year, with priority going to those who can proactively communicate a keenness to step up and be of service.
