At Camp Take the Lead, a select group of high-school age foster kids will take part in a five-day program designed to instill confidence and teach life skills. During the camp, major retailers will open their doors for exclusive behind-the-scenes visits, and demonstrate the availability of career paths in retail. The camp will be highly interactive and offer the students ample opportunities to bond with their peers, prepare to enter the workforce & have some fun!

During the program, students will work under the supervision of Florida’s Community-Based Care organizations, and will spend time with the participants in the Florida Retail Masters statewide leadership program, now in its ninth year. Florida Retail Masters alumni will have the opportunity to volunteer to mentor the kids as they continue their journeys to employment and independence.
