Emerging Leaders for Civic Engagement

"The lessons on how to be a leader
and improve our public speaking skills were great.

The lessons taught us the skills needed to build confidence, self-discipline,
honesty and humor, as well as
how to become change agents, and visionaries.
We learned how a leader uses these skills and that was really helpful to me."
