What is the Leadership Skills Training for Youth Program?
The Leadership Skills Training for Youth started as a 12-week program with Saturday morning sessions. The program started January 16, 2016. Training is provided by exceptional guest speakers and experienced leaders. This program enhances what is currently offered through the education, social and governmental systems.
This October, the leadership skills program will offer 8-weeks of training that will be led by Frank S. Sarlo (Chairman of the Board of Directors), who has a PhD in Philosophy, and Christina Coutu (Executive Director), who studied business at Sault College and marketing at Lake Superior State University.
"What we're trying to do is teach youth leadership skills so they can go into the community, take on some of these leadership roles at various organizations, such as Canadian Cancer Society and United Way, and be able to do some good works projects, Rob Prouse saw the importance of this program and donated funds to the Centre so we could meet our expectations."
