Anytown’s staff are dedicated volunteers that are committed to building communities of peace. Each staff member undergoes an extensive background check and participates in intensive training before attending Anytown. 


DIRECTORS are experienced professionals, carefully selected for their judgement, maturity and skill in communicating human relation topics. Directors prepare other staff members for their roles in the Anytown experience. All activities are planned, approved and supervised by the Directors. 


ADVISORS provide insight into the world beyond high school. They offer delegates the wisdom of experience. Advisors spend a week away from their careers as teachers, parents, clergy, nurses, business people, and professionals in other fields to join the Anytown staff. 


COUNSELORS are college and high school aged volunteers who are selected by the Directors. Each counselor is chosen by their participation in the Anytown follow-up program, Community Gatherings, and their involvement in making change in their own community.


MEDICAL STAFF may include registered nurses/medical professionals to ensure the safety of our community while at camp.  Key staff members will have updated CPR certifications. 


MENTAL HEALTH STAFF may include certified mental health professionals, or staff may be trauma-informed, to ensure the emotional and mental stability of our community.

"Anytown exceeded my expectations-- it is an organized, progressive and interactive approach that tackles the complexities of social justice. I gained an introspective and comprehensive view of social justice; I was empowered with a strong sense of community and developed a network of colleagues and friends in a fun, safe and inclusive environment."
