An accepting environment where all teens ages 12-18 are welcome to come to learn more about themselves. We will help them to grow into the leader they desire to be while making friendships that will last a lifetime! Being a Teen Leader allows for engagement in weekly meetings, social events, volunteer events, club fundraisers, weekend leadership conferences, and a week-long leadership retreat in the summer! What a great program to enhance your life and your college application!
