Over 50 students from VSAC Outreach programs (Talent Search, GEAR UP, and Aspirations) attended a three-day leadership program at Northern Vermont University in Lyndon in June. Students from grades 9 and 10, from high schools around the state, participated in the SEEDS Training Leadership Program. SEEDS Training, which is based in San Diego, designs and delivers educational programs that build life, leadership, and learning skills.
Students spent time together at NVU learning about their personal leadership styles, how facing the fears of "image" can keep them from fully pursuing their goals, and working to try, to trust, and to break through barriers. Both students and staff actively participated in team-based goals that focused on multiple ways for students to shine individually and as a team. In its second year, this was another successful experience for VSAC Outreach students and staff.
