A John Maxwell Team Global Youth Leadership Initiative will be held for all Bulloch County and area youth in grades 8 – 12, on Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m. – 12 noon, in the Statesboro High School Auditorium. The free event is the kick off for National Youth Leadership Week April 24-28, and is open to any public, private, charter or homeschooled students. Guest speakers for the event include Statesboro Mayor, Jan Moore, Langston Chapel Middle School Teacher Tim Mincey, and Dr. Dominique Halaby, who is a professor at Georgia Southern University and member of the Statesboro Downtown Development Authority.
The theme is “Building Leaders for a Greater Tomorrow.” The goal of the event is to inspire and equip young people to lead themselves and others with character, mutual respect and integrity. Youth who attend will get to interact with their peers from other schools and participate in leadership activities, as well as hear from excellent speakers from the community. The event is sponsored in part by the Statesboro Kiwanis Club, Franklin Chevrolet and the Statesboro High School National Honor Society.
The event is free, but youth are asked to pre-register their attendance at www.will-amp.com. Walk-ins are welcome.
