Please finish the following prompts:
1. Year(s) you attended La Cima. 2. Name of your senior counselor at La Cima. 3. Names of your council and dorm JCs:
1. Year you served. 2. Location. 3. Facilitator(s) you worked with. 4. School support staff you worked with.
Please take some time answering the following five questions.
Don’t rush your answers to send in the application fast. We look at all the applications after the due date, so it’s better to take your time and think about your answers than to rush or leave things blank. Keep in mind that "I'm not sure, I might need some help there" can be an appropriate answer.
(If you have been to La Cima, think about what your dorm JCs did that worked well to establish rules and create inclusion. If you have never been, think about other team, club or school experiences where you have felt included and safe. How was that achieved?)
(If you don’t have experience, do you have any ideas, or are there things you have seen work?)
(A good way to tell your story is to use the challenge/choice/change model. Think about a challenge you faced. Then think about a choice you made when faced with that challenge. How did the situation change as a result?)
Thank you for taking the time to fill this out. We will make our final selection by April 15 (WA) and will let you know as soon as possible.
