Leadership Development 

How do we get to success? Learning, practice, persistence, and self-worth are keys to success and growth. Throughout a youth membership, opportunities are given to youth to build a drive for achievement. 

Fun! 

Youth Council members have the chance to identify, organize, and host age-appropriate, drug-free, adult-supervised alternative activities to prevent substance use.
