The New Mentality held its annual Disable the Label leadership training retreat this past July at YMCA Geneva Park in Orillia, Ontario. The retreat was a huge success and our largest ever, hosting 65 people including 36 youth. Eleven CMHO agencies were represented, as well as community partners and special guests from across the province.
Over the four days, delegates participated in a diverse array of activities, including team building exercises, leadership skill development sessions, reflective art making activities, yoga and meditation, and outdoor sports. And of course, it wouldn’t be Disable the Label without a Talent (Not Required) Show, and lots of dancing!
One can imagine that upon returning home from Disable the Label, many of us were faced with the question, “how was it?” And of course the inevitable first thought: where to begin! To help with that question we’ve created a day-by-day recap of our journey, along with photos and a video!
