Teen Leaders Club

Leaders Club is a program for teens, ages 13-18 that provides opportunities for personal and professional development. Teens plan out service projects, discuss upcoming events and trips, and vote on which types of development opportunities they would either like to attend or bring into their future meetings. Leaders elect officers on an annual basis who serve as club president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary. These officers have additional responsibilities and assist their advisor to support their peers and ensure the success of the club.
