Age, Membership & Participation:
Generally, our youth range from middle school to young adults in their early 20’s. There are no limits on the number of youth want to connect into our annual activities, however our retreats and summits are limited to fifteen Ambassadors. The opportunity to attend these is based on commitment to, and engagement level in Gen7. The Gen7 leadership team reviews participation in all activities, as well as overall commitment and communication, as we determine which youth will fill the fifteen slots. For a Gen7 membership application please contact Lori Ventimiglia.
Membership in Gen7 is grant subsidized so there is no membership fee or event costs! However, if you are not from the region (CO, AZ, SD, ND, WY), you may be asked to self-fund your travel to and from gatherings. If these travel expenses are prohibitive for you, please contact Lori for a travel scholarship application at Lori@thetipiraisers.org
