PRIVATE: CONSCIOUS MINDS COLLECTIVE WORKSPACE

After camp 2015, our organizing team grew to 12 organizers. We realized that our work together starts with camp, but also expands into more in-depth projects including visions for our own school, wellness center, community center, creative commons, and eventually, our own rural learning village. So, we formed Conscious Minds Co-op - a not-for-profit democratic business that all campers have an opportunity to join.

The camp is the heart of CMCo-op. At Conscious Minds Camp youth develop visions and strategies for a better world; in Conscious Minds Co-op youth enact those visions.

EMPOWER YOUTH
To cultivate healthy and resilient communities

PROVIDE A HEALING SPACE:
Where youth are connected to urban and rural peers, earth and elders, critical and creative ways of thinking, and innovative ways of living

ENABLE YOUTH
To create a path forward, for all of us

Conscious Minds Camp is run by the directors of the Conscious Minds Co-op. The camp organizing team consists of at least 80% youth (13-29), and all organizers must have attended at least one year of camp. Just like in camp, we practice collaborative leadership. We integrate the models of Consensus decision-making and Holacracy to make sure that everyone has opportunity and support to contribute, everyone has a say in decisions that affect them, and we keep things moving.

CMCo-op has an extensive decision-making and conflict resolution policy that is continually being improved on. We also have set roles, such as Coordinators, Circle Leads, and Self-Development coaches that rotate on a seasonal or yearly basis. We are very proud of our organizing structure, and if you would like a copy of our Terms of Engagement, you can email us at youthproject@lift.to. We are happy to share.
