MAAP STARS is a broad based vocational organization for students in secondary alternative programs in Minnesota. This last week, three ALP students were elected for leadership by their own peers to go to Camp Ripley (military training camp) for the MAAP STARS overnight leadership conference.
I don't think any of us knew exactly what to expect on this overnight trip, though I know that all of us thought the experience was amazing. Through the help of one another and the inspiring speakers, our employment, social, and motivational skills were strengthened. We met and had fun with so many others who share the love we experience in our Alternative Learning Program. What was so cool, was how freely this was given to us. Stay tuned to read about how we plan to keep what we have by giving it away!!
