In 2007, the Presentation Sisters partnered with individuals in Omaha, Nebraska, to bring a Leadership Camp for young Hispanic women to the region. The camp in Nebraska was initiated by Sister Janice Mengenhauser, who worked in Omaha for over 23 years. In the first year, 34 young women learned about servant leadership as part of LIVE (Latinas Inspiring Virtuous Excellence) Leadership Camp held at Creighton Retreat Center near Griswold, Iowa. The Presentation Sisters support this camp and offer assistance and experience from the Black Hills camp, but the camp is run by a local committee of interested people working closely with Sister Janice.
I like everything about Camp – it was a great way to get to know girls from different areas that believe the same thing you do.~Camper
They show how to be a leader and they show me that I shouldn’t underestimate myself – that I am God’s masterpiece.~Camper
Words really can’t portray my full gratitude that I feel when I remember how much you have impacted my life. Thanks to your sponsorship for the LIVE Leadership Camp, I have grown up surrounded by awesome role models with golden advice and encouragement. ~Camp Counselor
