September 16, 2018: On Sunday, Harpswell Team Leaders met with the Harpswell management team for an afternoon of training. The Team Leaders, typically third or fourth-year students, are elected by their peers or chosen by the staff. They serve as liaisons between the Harpswell students and staff and help to run the dorms, assisting with communications, accounting, and discipline.
The afternoon began with team building activities and games. Country Director Samneang and Dorm Manager Vutha then led a discussion on dorm rules and the responsibilities of Team Leaders. The afternoon concluded with snacks and was by all accounts a success! Team Leaders left the training feeling confident and prepared to take on the responsibilities of their new role.
