One hundred students and staff came together last week for Toward the Goal’s first Youth Leader’s Conference. Students from West Holmes, Hiland, Garaway, Lake, Smithville, Riverview, Strasburg, and Dover met at Provia in Walnut Creek to learn more about Servant Leadership. The morning consisted of eight speakers who shared about various topics from leading yourself first to leading those older than you, to investing in those around you.
The Youth Leadership Conference is an extension of Toward the Goal Mentoring, a mentoring initiative which began this last year at two of our local schools. The mentoring model is available for other schools as well.
Special thanks to Provia for generously providing the venue, refreshments and lunches for all those who attended. We are also beyond grateful for our speakers and community supporters who helped to make this day happen: TTG partners, Troyer Cheese, Coblentz Chocolates, Save and Serve, and HC Ministerial.
