HORSESHOE – St. George, WV – Teens from West Virginia, Ohio, and Virginia gathered to brainstorm, collaborate, lead, and grow at YLA Leadership Summit at the Horseshoe Leadership Center in Tucker County, WV.
The one-week residential camp includes leadership-building activities such as high and low ropes challenge course, Mock Legislative, Judicial, and United Nations sessions, service project planning and implementation, youth officer training, Design Thinking workshops, outdoor adventures, and public speaking opportunities.
“This camp has changed my life in more ways than one. I have bettered my knowledge in skills such as fundraising, community service, and the pillars of leadership,” explains West Virginia’s Youth Governor Lauren Ballard of James Monroe High School. She adds, “This opportunity has granted me lifelong friends I can depend on and knowledge for the real world.”
Teens from every community and state are welcome. Ohio-West Virginia Youth Leadership Association’s purpose is to prepare today’s teens to be civic leaders in their schools and communities. Leadership Summits are one of many teen programs the Ohio-West Virginia YLA offers every community. Just give YLA a call at 304-675-5899 to get involved.
