Community decision makers and leaders interact with the students to identify and develop their leadership skills, increase their awareness of the challenges, resources and opportunities in our region, encourage community service, explore various career paths and opportunities and help build a commitment to their future role and responsibility as community leaders. The outcome is an investment in our community's most important resource our future leaders.”
