Fun, friendship, involvement, and learning! Last spring, the group met at Northeastern University to learn about how to write “elevator speeches.” They then recorded their speeches at the University’s recording studio.
The group also met with world-famous author Francisco Stork, who spoke to YLN members about creative writing - inspiring the group to do their own writing! The Young Leaders also volunteered at the Boston Walk for Epilepsy, where they managed younger children’s activities, such as face-painting and games.
Last year, several participants elected to go to our first ever Young Adult Retreat, a long weekend of fun and laughter in Southern Maine in April. One participant is selected to attend “Teen Speak Up” in Washington DC. We are now working on other opportunities - connect for more details!
