Welcome to Camp NetWorx! Citi Bank in partnership with IndependenceWorks and Peer MentoringWorks is inviting you to participate in a Virtual Camp of discovery, adventure, and storytelling. Join us as we explore the art of storytelling, personal discovery, and network building adventures. As part of the registration and pre-admission activities to Camp NetWorx, the camp team or your team mentor will be collecting information from each camper through a series of surveys and tools to initiate and develop your camper profiles.
During camp and between camp events you will continue to build and enhance your personal camper profile. Each camper will also participate in team activities during camp “campfire” summits and workshops. Each camper will be assigned to a virtual cabin. Your cabin team will participate in a project that will be shared at the campfire finale. All team cabin activities and individual activities will be led and supported by your cabin peer mentor and camp peer mentor coordinator.
Participation in these pre-camp activities is required for you to fully participate in the camp. Your mentor contact with IndependenceWorks will work with you to collect and initiate the basics of your camper profile. The primary goals of Camp NetWorx are to discover and explore skills to re-create your social, community, and professional profile to advance your transition to independence and employment. Let’s have fun and create an experience to remember.
Get your virtual s’mores together and prepare to join your fellow campers around the virtual campfire.
