August is a grand month for our program as the 2018 year officially kicks off with our Youth Retreat. Forty one youth from seventeen schools will officially start their leadership journey as we aim to help them better understand themselves as leaders, the community and how they can step up for others today! August is also a month when staff fine tune the first youth and adult leader sessions to make sure we are running strong out of the gate to make 2018 the best year ever. Last year, we had over 200 focused contact hours of training time including both tours and our class time discussing leadership skills, our community and our strategic plans to make the community better. Please check out our annual report on our webpage that captures the energy and success of last year. Our goal…deliver more dedicated leaders in 2018! That is our mission; that is our calling. We are here for Spokane, we are here for others and as a program, we are excited to expand, ramping up for a new year! We know that Leadership matters … Spokane matters … and citizenship matters. We are three-decades strong and getting stronger. Our distinguished Board of Directors and Ms. Ruth Reynolds, Ms. Jaxon Riley and I are committed to building upon our proud past for a fantastic future. Leadership Lights the Way! – Brian Newberry
