2021 MASC/MAHS Summer Leadership Camp

Arriving at the Michigan Associations of Student Councils and Honor Societies (MASC/MAHS) Summer Leadership Camp for the first time can be a bit jarring: scores of loud, enthusiastic, high school-aged students dancing, singing, and ultimately developing their leadership skills is certainly an uncommon experience. Give it a little time, however, and you’ll see just how beneficial the event is for the students and the Michigan communities they hail from.

The MASC/MAHS Leadership Camp focuses on developing core skills for the future leaders of Michigan communities. The program caters to all students ranging from grades 9–12 and features high-energy, introspective collaboration with their peers.

While the camp seeks to grow leaders, its effects are wide-reaching; as camp attendees head back to their schools, and ultimately their communities, they pass on the skills they’ve learned, enriching their environment, and Michigan as a whole. Recognizing the unique value of the camp, the SET SEG Foundation has been a long-time supporter of the program.

“Partnering with the MASC/MAHS Leadership Camp makes complete sense for the SET SEG Foundation,” explains Molly Mellema, the Executive Director for the Foundation and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at SET SEG. “Our mission is focused on providing students with the tools they need to enrich themselves and their communities. The camp is a very effective example of one of those tools.”

The Foundation awards over $26,000 in full scholarships every year to students across Michigan. The SET SEG team handpicks applicants, often selecting individuals who may not have the financial means to pursue a spot at the leadership camp.

To students like Sarayu Bethamchurla, the worth of the leadership camp is obvious: “If you want to change, if you want to work on yourself, then come to camp. If you want to meet incredible human beings that are capable of changing the world, come to camp.” And she should know; this is Sarayu’s second year at camp, thanks to scholarships from the SET SEG Foundation.

For over 15 years, the SET SEG Foundation has been passionately focused on student empowerment and providing financial support to things like the MASC/MAHS Summer Leadership Camp, helping to establish a bedrock of growth for Michigan students.
