Gina Jobe - Camp Coordinator

 

Here at Pink Leaf, our mission is to inspire youth to lead their best lives – to develop the skills 

and relationships necessary to take charge of their futures. Our bootcamps, where we teach 

real-life skills in a hands-on way, are a large part of our focus, and Gina Jobe, resident camp 

maven, is a driving force behind our camps. Gina is involved heart-high in all our programming: 

she writes curriculum, finds qualified (and kind!) instructors, recruits campers, writes reports, 

handles the billing...she does everything but teach.  

 

That’s something of a change for Gina who came to Pink Leaf after fourteen years as an 

elementary school teacher. Though she loved her students, she’s thrilled to work in an 

environment centered on building real relationships, encouraging youth, and growing practical 

skills -all things that cannot be measured with a standardized test.  

 

As a camp coordinator, Gina has seen, first-hand, the impact our bootcamps have on the youth 

involved. “I love to watch the excitement of some of the youth at the camps across Indiana.  

They are especially excited about getting to work in a little café in Indianapolis taught by the 

general manager and head cook.  It makes me smile every time I see how excited they are to 

have this opportunity.” She says. Even so, the program she’s most excited about is still an idea in 

progress – walking beside young single mothers and encouraging them with basic life skills and 

parenting tips. We’re pretty excited about that one too! 

 

Gina is a Jesus-loving, pottery-throwing grandma, and when she’s not here with us you can find 

her playing guitar, reading, quilting, and hanging out with her grandkids. “I’m passionate about 

loving the people God has put in my life.”
