YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
This 5-month youth empowerment program meets on Saturdays between November and May. Students work through activities in teams to become community leaders, changemakers, and their best selves.
HOW IT WORKS
Teams are led by college student mentors who facilitate the following processes:
1. Students identify their interests and strengths;
2. Research their community: identify and visit businesses working towards solving community problems; and
3. Create a project/internship with a local business.
The program culminates with an event where students share their personal growth and accomplishments through their digital stories. Local businesses, leaders, and community members will all be present to congratulate students on their accomplishments.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
Participation in this program is great for college essays, resumes, applications, and real-world experience. It is also a valuable tool for girl scouts, boy scouts, and other community-service minded organizations.

Note: This program does not focus on staying in the classroom. We get out in the community to learn from mentors and do actual field work.
