Last Saturday, TIF staff member Elda Hernandez brought 30 TIF high school students to participate in what was billed as “Survivor — Operation Out Play.” The group went to the event to “explore their inner strengths” according to Elda, who led the students to the Discovery Challenge Course in Naples. There, students participated in obstacle courses, team-building exercises, and physical challenges.
This wasn’t all fun and games, however. The event served as an opportunity to teach the students about the importance of team work and leadership, and challenged them to use one another’s strengths to allow them to work more effectively together.
