Local Students Empowered to Lead at Youth Summit

Students from schools across northeast Michigan gathered for a youth leadership summit, led by Dawn Flood of Student Leadership Services. Up North Prevention staff from Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties recruited high school students this spring to start Students Leading Students (SLS) chapters in their respective schools. Each chapter was represented and kicked off the summer with the first of three leadership summits, held at the NOAA Maritime Heritage Center in Alpena. Students learned about the three pillars of SLS chapters and about the traits of a good leader. The event wrapped up with team building exercises hosted by Laser Team Challenge. Each chapter is looking forward to their upcoming meetings in July and August to build momentum towards a kickoff event this fall at area schools.
