Leadership • Life Skills • Applied Learning

Saturdays will feature guest speakers, hands-on activities, and interactive lessons. Each meeting is designed for youth to learn about at least one aspect of leadership and at least one life skill, then participate in an activity that allows them to apply what they have learned. Each Saturday builds upon the next; therefore, it is encouraged that youth attend all three Saturdays.
