Middle schoolers - UGH! It's when hormones fly and children are finding their way in the social order of adolescence. In 2003, Leadership Lake County implemented a Youth Leadership Academy to address the need for leadership and social skills development for this specific population. We now see these students through high school and into their careers. The outcome is clear, they learned to make better decisions within a group and personally to become better students and citizens. We will share our journey and lessons learned with other organizations interested in changing the adolescent journey!

Objectives:
Setting up a middle school program - it's unique challenges
Developing a strong curriculum
Engaging alumni and current professional classes
Tracking outcomes
