2013 Medical Forms HERE

Are you a 2013 delegate attending a core program (ALS, MSEL, SHW) or Journey?  Be sure to complete and return the 2013 MLW Medical Forms.  Forms can be mailed to:

MLW , P.O. Box 1792, Germantown, MD 20875

MLW is a Certified Youth Camp through the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and part of that certification is the requirement of collecting this information.  The forms require emergency contact information (other than parent/guardian), brief health history, health care provider’s signature and contact information on the over the counter medication and prescription medication forms, a copy of your immunization record and a photocopy (front and back) of your health insurance card.

You can download the forms from the Apply/General Guidelines section of the website at http://mlw.org/index.php/application-information/general-guidelines.

 

2012 Delegates Share Their Thanks

Excerpts from thank you letters written by 2012 Core Program delegates who received MLW Scholarship Fund support.

“You gave me an experience to work with other leaders…Thank you for believing in me…”

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity. These skills that I learned in one week will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

“I have been given many leadership opportunities in the past, but none of which I could afford and that is why I love MLW. They allow me to attend their camp even if I am not financially capable…By awarding me this scholarship you have lightened my financial burden. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.”

“Being a part of SHW this year has definitely been an honor and will affect me in the future… Without your help I would not be the leader I am now.”

“I would like to take this time to thank you from the bottom of my heart. This Week has been amazing and as a person I have learned, grew, and succeeded. The lessons I learned throughout the week will stay with me for a life time, and its all thanks to every staffer at MLW.”

“I have only been to two programs but in just those two weeks you have effectively completely changed my life. MLW is the reason I am involved in student council. It has instilled values into me that I will care with me throughout the rest of my life.”

“Like many things in life, hard work can get you far, but it is the blessings and thoughtfulness of others who can help get you even further-the camp wouldn’t have been possible without you. Period.”

“I am so grateful for this opportunity and this organization should know they have changed a young girl for the better. I hope this organization keeps doing what they are because this is truly a remarkable program.”

“MLW definitely was a beautiful experience and the program was fantastic. Thank you again for your contribution and allowing me to participate in the program.”

“Thank you so much for sponsoring me to come here…This week has truly changed my life and my perspective. Now I know that I can actually do something.”

“I cannot express how much I appreciate your support and assistance. I have truly had one of the best experiences of my life, and I had never been so in tune with what leadership is until now.”

“Thank you very much, very, very, very, very, very, very much. I had quite the experience this week I learned a lot, that what I will really take away this week, the knowledge I learned…So thank you once again. I love you MLW.”

“I honestly experienced one of my greatest experiences in my life and I have you, MLW to thank for that.”

“This program made me improve on being a leader as well as a person in general. I appreciate all the support and belief in me. Thanks again.”

“This week has been a great experience because I feel different, inspired, touched, and happy. I would not have been able to come to this camp if it weren’t for your help.”

Welcome to the new mlw.org!

If you have logged on to mlw.org, you might notice things look a little different. We have a new layout and design that we hope makes navigating the site quick and easy. There is still great information about our mission, history, partnerships and programs (both Core and Community Outreach). New features include an on-line application for core programs and a shopping cart to pay tuition, buy MLW active wear and make tax deductible charitable contributions.  Take a tour, be sure to click on the photos on the home page for some great videos, and provide any and all feedback to office@mlw.org.  Happy MLW surfing!
