What is the Leadership Team?

The Leadership Team is a platform for youth (ages 16-24) to cultivate their minds and nurture their hearts towards building a healthy community.

Over the course of a year, team members will develop their leadership skills by exploring the community’s challenges and collectively working to address these issues through various creative mediums.

In 2017, the team will be exploring and addressing the issue of race and racism.

  • Connection: to deeply connect to your community and its people

  • Growth: to challenge your thoughts and ideas, and become more socially and personally conscious about issues impacting your community

  • Service: to empower yourself with the tools and skills necessary for serving and building a healthy community

 

What Will I Be Doing?
