Name: Ribbon Cutting - Stowe Heights Challenge Course | Community Youth Concepts
Date: June 9, 2021
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM CDT
Event Description:

Help us celebrate the newly opened Stowe Heights Challenge Course, a program of Community Youth Concepts! High and low challenge courses are known to increase participant’s self-efficacy or the belief in their ability to accomplish new tasks. People who have higher self-efficacy are more apt to be successful when taking on new situations, such as transitioning from educational institutions or jobs. Every year, Stowe Heights will aim to serve over 2,500 participants from the Greater Des Moines metro by promoting teamwork, communication, and leadership. They exist to help prepare the next generation of community-inspired leaders in our city and the world at large.

Register with Community Youth Concepts.

Face coverings are required for the duration of the event.
