Community Partnership: Leadership Michiana


To help youth discern how they can impact Michiana communities, Youth Leadership South Bend/Mishawaka has developed an intensive student leadership program using a servant leader model. Using the community as a classroom, participants learn leadership skills and community awareness while engaging in dialogue about issues within the community. While the goal of Youth Leadership is to cultivate “tomorrow’s leaders today,” participants also build self-confidence and esteem, pride in local citizenship, sensitivity to diversity, personal and community responsibility, and a sense of lifelong learning.

With high achieving academics, admirable school attendance, and a commitment to youth leadership, the following ND TRiO Scholars have become “tomorrow's leaders” via Youth Leadership South Bend/Mishawaka:
