Lighthouse Communities, Inc. would like to invite youth to participate in a free leadership training workshop. This is a great opportunity for the youth to uncover their leadership abilities.

We are offering two train-ings during the month of April! The first will be held Saturday, April 17, 2010 at the Boys & Girls Club Siedman Center (139 Crofton St SE) from 11:30am - 2pm. The second class will take place Saturday, April 24, 2010, from 11:30a-2:00pm at Baxter Community Center (935 Baxter St SE).

The goal of this training is to guide the youth to do the following:

  • Maintain a positive view of their future,
  • Develop a strong sense of purpose, self-worth, and social responsibility.
  • Pass on their leadership skills to other youth in their communities.

Please register by contacting Takara Taylor at 616.451.9140 ext 228.

Instructor: Jamiel Robinson, director of the Open Book Project which is facilitated through Ottawa Hills High School. This is an organization that strives to transform the perspectives of at risk high school youth, to embrace academic achievement by linking education, community and values.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.
