Are you a high school student interested in developing your leadership skills?

If any, or all, of these questions describe you, apply to be an Operation Snowball Teen Leader!

Operation Snowball Teen Leaders

Operation Snowball Teen Leaders are a team of high school students who meet weekly from October to April to plan a weekend retreat for middle school students, called Operation Snowflake. As part of this team, you will:

  • Build relationships with other teens from different schools
  • Improve your leadership and facilitation skills
  • Serve as a role model and guide to empower younger teens
  • Build confidence in your abilities and self-expression
  • Develop workshops and activities around topics that are relevant and exciting to you
  • Have fun

At the weekly meetings, the team will engage in team building activities, insightful discussions, and leadership training to help you gain confidence in your facilitation skills. Dinner and/or snacks will be provided at each meeting.

Currently, our plan is to have both our meetings and the weekend retreat in person. We will follow the most up-to-date CDC and IDPH guidelines and continually inform you and your caregivers of any changes.
