At Lead On, national and local speakers engage youth from all regions of the state through presentations on various topics, including healthy relationships, non-violence, leadership, positive choices and community involvement.
Additionally, youth leaders are fully involved in planning the conference, and at least a third of work shops were youth led. Youth led presentations included “How to Start Your Own Leadership Program”,“Plan and See”, “Outdoor Leadership”, and “Let’s Talk About It: Teens Speak Out About HealthyRelationships”. Youth also created plans to change their own communities, by planning projects with their peers around topics they cared about.
