LEAD (Lead, Explore and Develop) is designed to build self-confidence, create positive life skills and develop a sense of responsibility to the community. This is done through fun team building games and activities. LEAD members will take on planning and implementing a BC Youth Week event during the first week of May. LEAD is a stepping stone into our Youth Council group. This program is for youth in grades 9 – 12.
