MIRRORS PROGRAMME Quantum Learning for Students (QLS) Camp – Volunteers Needed for February 14 – 17, 2018

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

The Minister of Social Development and Sports, The Hon. Zane DeSilva, JP, MP, is appealing for community volunteers to assist in Mirrors’ four-day programme, Quantum Learning for Students Camp for middle school students. Volunteers undergo two days of training for the Team Leader role at camp, and in turn receive free cutting-edge training in the Quantum Learning methods and the 8 Keys of Excellence.

The camp will give 60 middle school students an incredible opportunity to develop their socio-emotional skills using the innovative neuroscience-based learning techniques developed by the Quantum Learning Network.

Mirrors QLS uses a structured curriculum to provide students with intensive, personal development skills.  They learn the framework for personal success with the 8 Keys of Excellence. “We keep students' minds engaged and bodies moving throughout the entire camp through a range of activities focused on communication, collaboration, creativity, character development and of course FUN,” said Kimberley Jackson, Programme Manager.  

Minister DeSilva stated, "Mirrors relies on community volunteers to build the positive supportive environment necessary for learning and growing. A cornerstone of the organization is building positive relationships between adults and young people.  It’s one of the Mirrors hallmarks, with proven results shared by both past volunteers and students.  I encourage you to volunteer and support our youth”.   

Mirrors is appealing for volunteers to spend four days, from Wednesday, 14 February to Saturday 17 February to support the camp and two days of training on Saturday, 10 February and Sunday 11 February before the camp.  

If you are interested in making a difference in the life of a young person in Bermuda, and would like to volunteer for Mirrors’ QLS Camp, or any of our other volunteer roles, please contact Mirrors’ Enrolment Manager, Nicola Feldman, on nmfeldman@gov.bm or call the Mirrors office on 294-9291to schedule a volunteer orientation.
