Are you an Alaskan youth aged 13-18? Are you interested in becoming a leader in your community? Would you like to work with other youth from across Alaska? Would you like the chance to promote peace and equality in your community? If so, Lead On! is your chance to make it happen!
Lead On! 2012 will take place during Veteran’s Day weekend, November 10th-12th in Anchorage, AK. Scholarships are available for travel and lodging (please see application). Check out this video from Lead On! 2012
Lead On! is a youth leadership conference aimed at promoting peace and equality throughout the state of Alaska! You will be able to attend workshops held by local and national speakers who use creative methods, such as theater, art, media, and discussion to explore a diverse range of topics including healthy relationships, nonviolence, culture & identity, positive choices, leadership skills, and community activism. In addition, you will develop skills that help you complete your own youth-led project that promotes individual, community, and/or relationship wellness.
