Sustainable Development is key to ensuring prosperity for ourselves and our future generations. What exactly does this mean though and how can today’s youth prepare to lead for a flourishing future?
Compass Youth Camp for Leaders (CYCLe) is a youth camp facilitated and led by Compass Youth Leaders. You will learn from first-hand experiences of your peers who have put this knowledge and skills to practice in their own schools. If you enjoy it, you can apply to come back next year and be a Compass Facilitator and Leader!

Campers will gain the tools, skills and language to be a more effective
leader and change-maker in your school and community through the following experiences:
The Camp will consist of four different parts:
There will be an array of highly interactive, collaborative workshops that will be led by our amazing team of Compass Youth Leaders – a mixture of alumni from previous camps and students that have experience of using and teaching the Compass tools in their school. Participants will come away with the ability to use the Compass tools for their own club, class and community projects when they return home.
LOCAL CASE STUDIES
The camp includes excursions to local NGOs working in social and environmental issues around Chiang Mai and also gives participants the opportunity to meet and talk with inspirational people about their own experience working to address local and global issues and to hear their personal story of how they became involved in their work.
As well as training participants to have useful knowledge and skills that could be the start of a path towards becoming a leader for sustainable action, there will be a series of fun and challenging team building activities that are designed to test leadership and teamwork ability – allowing participants to gain feedback and to identify and practice in aspects of leadership that they would like to develop in.
APPLICATION OF LEARNING
As part of CYCLe, participants are given time to reflect on their learning and plan how they can apply it to their lives at home. They will also be challenged to teach some of the tools learned during the camp to a small group of volunteers, which will give them the chance to see whether they might be interested in returning in a future year as a Compass Youth Leader!
