¡La Chispa! (The Spark!) Regionals & Retreat
Ignite a passion for leading and learning
The goal of our one-day ¡LA CHISPA! regional workshops held each October and November is to ignite a spark and create a flame of focused energy with middle level Latino students in Washington State.
Student participants will:
- Build positive connections with Latino high school student leaders and college-age role models
- Engage in a bilingual & biliterate environment designed to promote the value of reading, writing and speaking in two languages
- Learn leadership and life skills including: goal setting, teambuilding, leadership styles, resiliency, service to one’s school and community and navigating a bicultural life
- Explore three over-arching questions: Who am I? What can I do? Where do I go from here?
Adults attending the workshop or retreat will learn with their students and will also have networking time with other committed educators and community members. The workshops are facilitated by staff members from AWSL's successful La Cima bilingual high school leadership camp.
