Overview

Each week-long session is a full immersion into our core values: Leadership, Ethics, Empathy and Philanthropy. Each day consists of 5-6 activities that foster individual and group leadership skills, a deeper understanding of service and a broader knowledge of the nature of the non-profit sector.

At Grab The Torch (GTT) we instill a basic principle in each student: the greater good is like a puzzle, and we all hold a piece of it. At our Institutes, each student is challenged to take a piece, no matter how big or small, and find his or her true passion. Without each GTT graduate's full commitment to take action, the puzzle will never be complete. Our fundamental message is maintained throughout the week “give to give, not to get. Your lives will be enhanced by unconditional giving.”

Staff and alumni lead students through over 15 academic sessions emphasizing leadership and non-cognitive skills, including servant learning, traditions of philanthropy, community mapping, goal planning, Design Thinking and Conscious Capitalism. Students also engage with at least 10 local speakers, including CEOs, entrepreneurs and visionaries from the corporate, non-profit, philanthropic and community engagement sectors.

 GTT combines this extensive, unique curriculum with the magical, bonding experience of summer camp. In each beautiful, thriving location, GTT plans outdoor adventures, team-building activities and community field trips to build connections and relationships that will last a lifetime.
