RESPONSIBLE. ETHICAL. ACCOUNTABLE. LEADER.
The R.E.A.L Pledge was introduced in 2020 – a year like none other – when work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude were required of each of us more than ever before. By instituting this R.E.A.L Pledge into our youth leadership curriculum, we inspired young people to develop a growth mindset so that they could push past any challenges they may face and become more motivated, productive, and resilient.
“Teaching young people to have a growth mindset is one of the best things we can do at the Light Foundation to equip them for their most promising future. Through all of our youth programming – and especially Camp Vohokase – we help kids overcome the hurdles they face and develop the necessary skills to persist. As a result, our campers take more risks, develop a greater motivation to succeed, and ultimately put more effort into everything they do in life.”
