Teen Programs Greater Denver: Littleton
Teens are eager for an experience that will empower their sense of autonomy and yet allow them to become leaders in a cohesive group. We challenge young adults to rise to an exciting, positive, and deeply fulfilling role with their peers and with the younger students that look up to them. Renaissance Adventures offers two very different programs to develop these qualities in young adults: The Teen Leadership (CIT) and The Hero’s Academy programs.
TEEN LEADERSHIP (CITs) | Improvisation and Leadership Skills, Ages 13 – 17
Learn the arts of storytelling and improvisational acting, as well as the skills of conflict resolution, team building and responsible empowerment! Teen Leaders (aka CITs) apprentice with our skilled Quest Leaders, either in a group of other CITs as a roaming Ranger group that helps other groups, or as a mentor to a group of younger Questers in the Knight role.
For more information about specific CIT programs, as well as how experienced CITs can come for free as a Master or Grandmaster CIT, please see the CIT Information and Training packet or call the office.
