The Responsible Citizenship Retreat, held at Snowbird each October, is a dynamic, interactive event for students, AmeriCorps members, and VISTA members.
Attendees participate in a series of activities and discussions designed to deepen their understanding of civic responsibility and how they can make an impact in their communities. Experienced facilitators provide participants with a safe environment to respectfully discuss potentially controversial issues and teach them effective advocacy strategies. The facilitators also guide participants through a project-planning process that helps them analyze the issues underlying their humanitarian activities so that these service activities are more meaningful.
