Ignite Youth Leadership Program
Our Ignite Youth Leadership Program is an 8-week course that teaches and works with youth ages 12 -16 on leadership and life skills! Each week, these students have a 1-hour session where they will learn about different communication techniques, basic money management and other leadership skills. They will also be volunteering with our classes for one or two hours weekly which will give them some hands on leadership experience. They can then use these volunteer hours for Beta Club, Key Club, or National Honors Society, etc in their schools! We are working to give back to a community that has given so much to us!
Ignite Session One: January 11th-March 1st
Session One of Ignite will consist of training on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 along with 1-2 hours of volunteer time (individually scheduled) per week. Our Tuesday session is currently open and ready for registration! You can sign up today! The volunteer hours (1-2) are flexible each week, but the training session is set weekly.
*We would like to offer a Saturday 8:15-9:15 session as well from January 15th-March 5th. Our Saturday session is waitlist-based, if we have enough students on our waitlist, we will hold that session starting January 15th. If the Saturday time slot works best for your schedule please waitlist now so that we can gain enough interest to open that session!
Each session will cost $75 and covers all material fees.
We are excited to offer this program and look forward to seeing your children become future leaders. This program is offered to members and non-members, please pass along this information to friends and family as we hope to fill this program and train our leaders of tomorrow!
