This 2-day leadership program teaches leadership traits, communication skills, problem solving, teamwork, and community service.

Students spend two days with highly trained and qualified facilitators experiencing leadership in such a way that they can take the learning and apply it to real-life situations.

Students learn to solve their everyday problems, build self-confidence, and become role-models for their friends and families.

They identify and solve school, community and personal problems that they face. Students create action plans that are safe, doable and can be enacted upon leaving the conference.

The use of skits, games, and workbooks keep students engaged with the learning.

Conference Location:

Van Buren Elementary School

47733 Van Buren St, Indio, CA 92201
