Information for Group Leaders

Each of the 8 regional groups has one group leader.

As group leader, you take part in the same programme activities, in the same way as everybody else. But you carry some special responsibilities in addition.

To prepare for your role, you will come to Hamburg one day earlier (July 24).

Role of the group leaders:

  • be in charge during the Preparation Weekend
  • meet the directing team via Skype before and after the Preparation Weekend
  • represent the wishes and needs of your regional group
  • communication link between participants and directing/mentoring team
  • organise 5 open leisure activities (see timetable)
  • help the mentors preparing the On-Arrival and Follow-up Session
  • be especially aware of safety/emergency issues

The extra preparation day on July 24 offers time to prepare for that role. Specific trainings will help you. You will receive a certificate confirming your leading role.
