Roles and Responsiblities:
A Maven has a role similar to a camp counsellor and a mentor. Mavens will be put in pairs and each pair will be given a group of delegates at the virtual conference. Following the conference, Mavens are expected to take action on their initiatives and lead the group to take action in the community. At the end of the school year, we plan to host a CREATE retreat filled with the regular leadership sessions that you may be familiar with, while delegates reflect on their prompt planning. Please keep in mind that a Maven is expected to stay committed throughout the entire year.
