About TLC
TLC is being created based on a tried and tested leadership correspondence course that’s been running for over a decade at a summer camp. For 2 years, Xylem directed and further developed a teen leadership program for Camp Augusta, including a 9 month online mentorship program and three weeks of in-person training. She’s been adapting the curriculum for a larger audience, because these skills have proven to be are for teens’ lives. She mentored 22 co-ed teens and 17 young women counselors from 2011-2015, whose feedback helped Xylem refine her offerings as a teacher and mentor from their honest feedback about philosophies, content, and approach.For 2 years, Xylem directed and further developed a teen leadership program for Camp Augusta, including a 9 month online mentorship program and three weeks of in-person training.

Xylem Larla Dey
Xylem has been engaged in service work for the youth and for the earth since she was a child. Coming from a homeschooled background, Xylem gained educational training through deep immersion in theater outreach and environmental education, and has created curriculum in unconventional community settings such as treesitting, summer camps, and spending 12 months total on a veggie-oil fueled bus caravan that plants fruit trees at schools with kids. In 2015, after 20 years working with youth, Xylem completed a Masters in Education. For her Masters Project, she designed an alternative environmental high school design after researching at four established high schools with alternative techniques like service learning, apprenticeships, wilderness education, and all-school meetings. Xylem’s longterm goal is to create and consult for new high schools based on the 4 A’s: Academics, Arts, Apprenticeships, and Adventures. TLC’s online and in-person workshop curriculum is building towards the high school vision, generating content which will be included in the programming and culture of future high schools.  View Xylem’s Resume Here
