  • Plans are being made to hold Bright Lights camps in-person in Summer 2021.

    That means we will be recruiting over 150 Camp Assistants. Current eighth-graders and up may apply to be a Camp Assistant this summer. Discover some fun for yourself while providing enrichment for students!

    Bright Lights Camp Assistants play a valuable role in our summer program. Their commitment helps support the teachers, ensures student success, and provides a rewarding experience that makes a difference in the classroom.

    Summer is a great time to complete  volunteer hours  for GOPO, service hours for the parochial schools, or other service project hours. To earn 15 hours  toward  GOPO or service hours, assistants must attend the orientation, assist the teacher with classroom setup, and be in attendance for the full program week.

  • Mental Health First Aid
    This 8-hour training course is designed to give you key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and addictions. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. You can help.

    The evidence behind MHFA demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy.

    Youth Mental Health First Aid
    A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

    You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

    Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.
