Leadership Conference

Middle and High School age students


WHAT IS IT?

CHANGE IS HAPPENING ~ everywhere, right now, exponentially! We live in a time of great responsibility and also of great opportunity. Over the last 6 years, the Be The Change Leadership Conference has evolved into a place for local teens to be inspired about making a difference. Youth voice and leadership are important. The Be The Change Leadership Conference is about hearing those voices and expanding that leadership.

HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

Nigel WranghamGood question. To help us with that, we have invited Nigel Wrangham, a nationally recognized speaker/innovator on the topics of leadership, community organizing, and prevention. He is well known for impassioned presentations and facilitating activities (games!) that teach about leadership and can be applied to real world scenarios.

He will be accompanied by several trained youth co-facilitators and other adult presenters from the local community to address this year's youth selected topics -

  • Media and you
  • You and your brain
  • Stress management and dealing with depression
  • Healthy relationships - domestic violence, date rape, sexuality
  • Dazed and confused - substance abuse - alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs and other drugs.
  • Show me the money - Financial responsibility
  • Live it up! Don't give it up! - suicide prevention
  • Police response to particular situations, driving and texting, careers in law enforcement


If that's not enough, the flow of the day is designed to have a chance to meet with fellow youth, have FUN, enjoy a FREE lunch and go home with a FREE T-shirt!
