Area youths invited to leadership training

On March 22, youth are invited to join together for a free leadership training filled with fun, friends and food.

Leadership is about standing up, inspiring others and being responsible even when it may not be convenient or pleasant.  In this two-hour session, young people in grades 6-8 will explore a variety of leadership models, begin to analyze their personal style and work together in teams experimenting with a shared leadership model.  The workshop facilitators are Pat Campanaro, Dr. Kathy Ogle and Dr. Val Ulstad.  Each one of these women brings years of leadership experience and an interest in sharing her knowledge on the topic of leadership.

After the workshop, all of the participants are invited to stay for pizza and a movie on the big screen at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts.  The event will last until 8:15 p.m.  Students are to meet at the Cook County Community Center at 3:45 and be picked up by 8:15 at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. 

Pre-registration is required through Community Education.  Call 387-2000 or visit www.cookcountyschools.org/cookcounty/cmed for registration details. Sponsored by Cook County Community Education, Cook County Extension, KIDS PLUS, Connecting the Dots and Partners at Cascade Bluff
