What is the Leadership Challenge?
The Leadership Challenge consists of 45 hours of curriculum training that takes place affter the traditional school day, together with 10-15 hours of servant leadership with a variety of community organizations. Each participant comes away with valuable skills designed to serve them in future endeavors; skills such as organization, time management, public speaking, goal setting and constructive criticism. Leadership Challenge provides an opportunity for youth to look beyond their high school environment, opening their eyes to new avenues they might not otherwise have pursued.
