LEAD (Leadership Education and Action Development) is a formal volunteer opportunity that provides kids with the opportunity to learn skills that will help them succeed as leaders, both in school and later in life. In the end, the young people will have acquired educational enrichment, self-confidence, team spirit, and the means to make a significant contribution to quality of life and the community.
For youth interested in becoming future leaders and decision makers of TREE MUSKETEERS consider participating in one or all of the LEADership courses, including the Youth Management Series, Public Speaking or Youth Planting Supervisor Training. Youth who participate in one of these courses become eligible to joining the Youth Management Team. After successfully serving on the Youth Management Team for one year you can apply to sit on the Board of Director and even become President.
Participation in the LEADership program is open to all area youth in 5th – 12th grades. The cost of the program is discounted for Partners for the Planet members.
LEAD courses are offered in the summer, and sometimes in the fall. Check the Volunteer Calendar for dates of the next LEAD session.
