HEALTH • LOVE • WISDOM

培訓營的理念 YLC MISSION 健康 愛 智慧

Sunlight, air, and water are three of the most common and universal elements of nature that allow for the continuation of life and growth on Earth. Human morality and its future are likewise influenced by the three elements of “Health, Love, Wisdom” allowing for the preservation of future and development of persona. As such, the future of humankind is in the hands of children. Through STC’s Youth Leadership Camp, we wish to emphasize the importance of these three elements by teaching children to have a sound character, maintain a correct outlook on life, and pursue happiness. These inalienable factors, similar to air, water, and sunlight are essential to promoting a brighter future. By teaching our children to cherish health, we show them that in order to attain a better future one must have sufficient energy and stay hearty in order to confront the struggles that they come across in their search for a happy life. By teaching our children to love, we emphasize that in order to become a leader one must listen to the voices and needs of others. Only through empathy and selfless giving can a person have the proper respect needed to promote the brightest future possible. By teaching our children wisdom, we demonstrate that one does not walk through life alone, but with the history and intelligence of others. With it, a person is able to learn from mistakes of the past and confidently make decisions that will in turn guide them to achieve their dreams and overcome any challenges they come across. Here at STC Foundation, we wish to impart the significance of doing good in order to create more good. Taught in a general classroom setting, this program uses community service, arts, physical exercise, and games to exemplify and teach children the skills of becoming both a just and able leader. By using a hands-on approach and involving the children in field trips and seminars, we hope to craft the newest generation into the outstanding leaders of tomorrow.

「健康、愛、智慧,就像是陽光、空氣、水一樣地重要」。 陽光、空氣、水,是三項來自於大自然最常見普遍,但對於萬物生命延續與成長來說卻是最重要的基本元 素,而STC青少年領袖營所要傳達的理念:「健康、愛、智慧」,對於身為國家未來主人翁的孩子們來說, 就是幫助他們建立正確人生觀、塑造健全品德、追求幸福人生中不可忽略,就如同陽光、空氣、水一樣地重 要。 在二十一世紀的今天,地球村的架構與全球化的聲浪席捲之際,國家與國家的疆界是一種全新的界定,更加 自由地競爭環境使每個人都必須面對來自四面八方的挑戰。如何盡早完成與世界接軌的準備,是需要從小開 始培養、倚靠健全的教育來賦予他們追尋夢想的能力,而「健康、愛、智慧」正是「STC順天聯合基金會」 所舉辦的「STC青少年領袖品德培訓營」希望帶給孩子們追求美好未來、作為成長發展準則的三個信念。 有了「健康」,我們才有足夠的動力來追求美好未來,才有足夠的精力來貢獻所學,也才有足夠的本錢來為 創造幸福人生而奮鬥。 有了「愛」,我們才會去細心傾聽他人的聲音和需要,才有同理心設身處地關懷他人和無私付出,也才有慈 悲的愛心來尊重與愛惜生命、為全世界福祉而服務。 有了「智慧」,我們才不會在人生的旅途中迷失了方向,才能在面對難關時做出正確的選擇,也才能夠從錯 誤中學習成長,再接再厲地迎接人生的挑戰。 在一般課堂上傳授的學業之外,我們更注重包括道德品性、領導統御、社會服務、藝術修養、體能鍛鍊、溝 通與創造能力訓練等全方位才能的重視和培育,在來自社會各界的優秀賢達人士帶領下,透過室內靜態課程 與戶外動態參訪教學等活動,讓我們的孩子們能夠建立幸福健康的人生觀,拓展他們的思想和格局,成為兼 具品德與才能的傑出青少年領袖。 每個孩子就像是一個種子,需要細心的灌溉和培育,適當地提供陽光、空氣、和水來使種子成長茁壯、成為 棟樑。STC順天聯合基金會就是秉持著這樣的宗旨,以「健康、愛、智慧」為中心的善意思想,來雕塑青少 年的品格和人格,提昇他們的競爭力,引領他們邁向璀璨的人生道路,積極地貢獻所學並且回饋社會、為推 動世界和平與全人類福祉而努力。

Signature PROGRAMS

STC Youth Leadership Camp courses and curricula are designed with the three elements of Health, Love, and Wisdom in mind. Each activity is carefully chosen for its ability to enhance each of our students’ body, spirit, and mind by offering skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships. By discovering friendships, character values, and by having fun we aim for our students to build the self esteem and leadership abilities necessary for their success in the future! STC’s Youth Leadership program is a place for our students to reach their fullest potential with the nurturing of fellow students, mentors, and speakers.

International Etiquette Class

Adopt-A-Highway By caring for our environment, we provide a better and safer world for our future generations. The Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program is one such activity which students gain experience in cleaning up the streets in their neighborhood and receive a keen understanding of being respectful to the environment and everything around them! The Adopt-A Highway Program started in 1989 and has been one of the most successful governmentpublic partnerships of our time. More than 120,000 Californians have cleaned and enhanced over 15,000 shoulder-miles of roadside

Local Recycling Plant Field Trips

social dance class What is the difference between business casual and formal wear? How should I present myself in a professional setting versus a casual dinner setting? Etiquette and cultural understanding in different social environments are an important part in maintaining the first impression of a professional and mature young adult. In our International Etiquette Class, we teach our students the significance of social etiquette in a carefully tailored environment in order to prime them for success.

Collaborating with our local Recycling Plant partners such as Valley Vista Services and Republic Services, our students are able to visit the facility to witness how recycling is done. This experience teaches them the rebirth and reutilization of old into new. The process begins when trash is picked up from a recycling bin and taken to a sorting facility, where items are separated and baled. The materials are then taken away to a facility where they are cleaned, processed, and blended with other similar materials. The batched material is then converted into a new end product! By teaching our students that nothing goes to waste they can better learn to respect and love the earth they live on!


museum of tolerance

Museums Field Trips Los Angeles offers a wide variety of museums. By taking our students to these facilities we hope to endow upon them the wisdom of history. Through this, students learn to expand their horizons and fascination of the past so that they are better informed to handle situations in the future. In past years we have visited the Museum of Tolerance, Pacific Asia Museum, all in the hopes of inspiring our leaders!

In addition to a strong mind, a leader must also have a strong body. STC’s Youth Leadership Camp recognizes it and has exercise classes especially focused on teamwork and allowing for the greatest coordination and collaboration. These activities allow for us to teach and emphasize the best attitude behavior needed to succeed. These courses include everything from group games, martial arts, to dance classes all aimed towards stimulating our young minds.

A leader must learn to work with the community around him/ her and STC collaborates with many local organizations and public ser vices so that the students have the greatest exposure. Our trips to City Hall, Environmental Centers, Public Transit, etc. all allow our youth to better understand the working of a city infrastructure and how communication allows for seemingly impossible goals to be achieved and problems to be conquered.

Special PARTNERS

STC Foundation’s Youth Leadership Camp would not be where it is without the collaboration and support of local groups. In hopes of expanding our young leader’s horizons we have worked together with organizations and programs with similar goals in order to promote the essence of community and camaraderie. In 2013 we had the opportunity to collaborate with FFDY and in 2015 we were blessed with being able to witness the Special Olympics in Los Angeles. Together, we hope to build a lasting memory and friendship aimed towards providing a better world for all!

The Foundation For Disabled Youths (FFDY) is a grassroots non-profit organization established in June 2004 in the San Gabriel, California area. The organization was officially formed by parents and other concerned individuals of disabled youths whose initial purpose was to provide aid for the many special needs of their disabled children. Mission Statement The FFDY’s mission is to provide a local forum where families of disabled youth can share information, knowledge and experiences with other families in similar situations. Those shared include opportunities to participate in diverse community activities and support groups, as well as answers and solutions to many questions and issues that arise while raising a disabled child. www.ffdy.org

FFDY Students and Volunteers at the 2013 YLC Camp

Working with FFDY gave us a wonderful opportunity to meet Paul Chiou. As a child, Paul became a paraplegic after a car accident. Despite his physical difficulties, he achieved above and beyond what was expected of him. He shared with us the trial life has presented to him, and the rewards for perseverance.

特殊奧林匹克運動會感言

CONNECTING WITH ATHLETES 16

Kingsley Tong “Meeting the Special

Olympians was a blast and a once in a lifetime chance thing to do. When I found out that we were going to meet with the special athletes, my whole body was shaking to go there and meet these people.”

Eric Yang “Amongst the great experiences at Ethan Tong

“The special olympics was something I have never experienced before. This experience has given me so much hope in doing new things in life, and to believe that anything can happen. Working with the special olympic athletes was such a good opportunity, and I hope I can do it again.”

STC’s YLC, students were able to interact with the athletes from the special olympics. During this amazing opportunity, students were able to create a beautiful bond with the athletes. Even with a language barrier present, the conflict was easily overcome by simple friendly gestures to one another. This once in a lifetime event taught a great deal to YLC students while also providing a fun experience!”

Rachel Yang “I’ve

Aileen Lu “I am glad I got to take this one in a

lifetime opportunity to interact with the special athletes, I have learned a lot from them and I will be sure to use it in my everyday life.”

www.STC-YLC.com

learned a lot from the Special Olympics’ Athletes. They taught me things that I really didn’t even pay attention to my entire life. And I am mistaken for doing so. For example, even though a simple thing to us like folding paper three times around another strip of paper seems pretty easy to us, it may not be easy to the athletes. They were probably trying really hard to function and do what we were doing and we shouldn’t just get frustrated and give up, but instead try our greatest to get them to understand. This shows them that we care. I saw them really put an effort at following our directions and that made me feel genuinely happy. “


Sharon Kim “Special Olympics was

incredibly a once in a life time opportunity to have attended. This event had opened my eyes even bigger about life and what was going on. I realized that even angels are able to attend and compete in olympics. It made me happy to see all their smiles opening up before and after competing. It will be an unforgettable moment in my life and I have truly experienced something amazing.”

Jeffrey Wu

“I got to see a lot of special athletes at the Special Olympic Games. These athletes were very diligent and are very wonderful.”

Nancy Liu “Special Olympics is a once in

a lifetime experience that has a special place in my heart. I’ve have learned to be happy with even the simplest things in life and that you can connect with people through simple gestures and welcoming expressions.”

Kasey Tong

Sarah Chang

“Attending this event made the gap between “special needs” and what classifies as “normal” much smaller. Watching the athletes, specifically in track events, I noticed how easy it was for people to overlook their limitations by supporting their talents.”

“My experience with the Special Olympic Athletes was an event that I will always look back on. It made me feel extremely lucky that I got this rare opportunity to meet Olympics athletes.”

Katherine Zhang “Special Olympics was one

of the events that ylc was able to be apart of this year. It was such a heartwarming and honor to have been able to interact with the athletes. We were fortunate enough that we were able to attend and cheer on the members of both the basketball and track team that represented team Taipei!!”

Chak Cheong “Even though the special Olympics welcoming event was a

bit unorganized, the overall warmth and understanding between the athletes and us counsellors was astounding. Whether it was at the tables with us or on the stage performing, the pure joy that the athletes exudes with every movement and facial expression was genuine. A genuine feeling of joy that was pure and special. Their special needs was by no means an obstacle, and it surprised even me how much better it allowed me to understand them.”

青少年領袖品德培訓營 STC YOUTH LEADERSHIP CAMP

Kyra Liu “The experience with the Special

Olympic athletes was so much fun because of how energetic they were, despite all the traveling they had just done, and even though they weren’t sure about some things, they still tried their best, and had more enthusiasm than we did on our first time doing them. They seemed like they were having so much fun, and it just made me so much happier to be there and to be able to talk to them and really try and make them smile.”

YLC 領導培訓營感言

YLC CAMP REFLECTIONS

Camp was very exciting and made me very energetic. If people don’t know what this camp is, it’s one of the best and most splendid thing to go! Kingsley Tong

Jeffrey Wu

I have attended leadership camp for three years now, and personally this has been the one that I will cherish the most. The people that I have met, the field trips that we attended and the valuable lessons we’ve learned from all the teachers has really made this year’s YLC a unique and memorable experience. The two weeks of YLC has really made a big impact on me and helped me develop as both a better person and a better leader. Thank you to everyone that was part of the wonderful experience!

STC YLC 2015 was a great opportunity for students and counselors alike to have an experience of a lifetime. With this year’s YLC, students were able to potentially form networks and obtain wisdom that would be considered far-fetched for the typical person.

Eric Yang

Katherine Zhang During camp this year, I’ve had an amazing experience learning new things and making new friends.This gave me the courage to go out and venture out to experience new things that I’ve never done before. I hope to come back next year, so that I can experience new things with STC!

My experience at STC Youth Leadership Camp was adventurous, exciting, and memorable. I learned many qualities of being a good leader. I really hope that I can keep coming back every year.

Kasey Tong

Ethan Tong

STC leadership camp has brought me so many new experiences and memories over the past four years. It is such a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. I love the fact that even though you may not know anyone on the first day of camp, on the last day you have become so comfortable around each other and you aren’t shy anymore. This camp is one of the best things that has ever happened to me because it has taught me so many skills that I know I will need in the future.

Kyra Liu

I am Jeffrey ,when I come to this camp, I feel very special. We learned how to treat others with care as well as learning a lot of different abilities in life. I want to thank all teachers for these opportunities. And the most important things are “LOVE , HEALTH, WISDOM”.

www.STC-YLC.com

This year’s camping was really exciting to go to because we camped at STC clubhouse and we got to learn how to put up our own tents,and clean up after ourselves. And especially bond with our fellow friends. But I hope next year we will do something different.

Maggie Lu


This camp has taught me many life lessons and also important skills that are needed in the present and the future. Some things I have learned are skills such as health, love, and wisdom. I really admire how John told us to tell our parents that we love them, hug them, and also tell them a story. I believe that this is strengthening our bonds with them. Parent and child bonds are very important for our parents are the ones who gave life to us and paid for this camp. They deserve some care and respect. John also taught us a few life lessons. He talked about how in life you have to do two things: keep going and to stop and check. This represents focus on your goals, never giving up, and making sure you’re all right. Anyways, this past week it has been a blast! I am usually pretty quiet and the activities they want us to do really get you to come out of your shell and socialize. I think this is a great moral to learn for the future. Say, job interviews. The job applicant who is more outgoing and talkative will probably have a higher chance of getting the job rather than a really shy person who prefers not to get out of their comfort zone. The interviewer will be looking for someone who will do anything they can for the job and being discreet and reluctant doesn’t really cut it.

Rachel Yang

Throughout my YLC experience, I never thought I would make valuable friends in such a short amount of time. The camaraderie that we shared and the memories we’ve made are ones I will cherish for a lifetime. And I will miss all of my fellow counselors and students very much. But don’t worry, I will definitely be back next year!

YLC camp has transformed me into a better leader and taught me responsibility through strenuous but fun and memorable activities and events”

Nancy Liu

With love, Chak.

Chak Cheong

My name is Sharon Kim and I have learned so many new and useful things from this camp. I overcame my public speaking skills and met a lot of new people, which made me interact and communicate even more to the people around me. I felt really connected to these people and had a great experience.This camp has made me a better person and I will definitely come back again! Thank you. Sharon Kim

This year’s YLC was an interesting and exciting experience. It was interesting and exciting because out of the 4 years I have been at YLC, this was my first year as a co-counselor. My favorite moment was the group games because that allowed us to become close with each other.

Aileen Lu

The camp overall sent a very uplifting message of living life positively by improving your state of health, wisdom, and love in most all its activities. What made the experience even more rewarding was everyone’s active participation and growing sense of confidence and leadership. I was truly able to watch students develop stronger social skills and become comfortable in an interactive environment.”
