Info about the Youth Leadership Camp Avanoa Tutusa

Avanoa Tutusa (which means "Equal Opportunities") is a non-government organization (NGO) committed to raising awareness among the Samoan community. This year they have formed a working partnership with another NGO, The National Youth Foundation (NYF), to organize a Youth Leadership Camp (YLC). This Youth Leadership Camp will build on the successes of the regional Youth Workshop held in Fiji and the 2000 Youth Leadership Camp in Samoa. The theme for the weeklong overnight camp will be "Youth: Exploring our Potential" and will target 100 youth participants. This year's camp objectives range from promoting self-discovery through the use of self-esteem and trust building activities to teaching basic health skills, such as First Aid, CPR, and proper nutrition. The community will pay for the transportation costs of the participants, as well as provide labor and materials. They have received grants from other organizations to pay for the training, media coverage, and pre-conference meetings, but they still need your assistance to cover the catering costs for the youth camp
