Vera Court Neighborhood Center
Youth Leadership Program
The Vera Court Neighborhood Center's Youth Leadership Program is designed for middle school students who strive to be leaders in the community. The leadership program provides opportunities for youth to discuss alcohol and other drug issues, conflict resolution, decision making skills, making positive choices and other issues facing today's youth.
In additional to facilitated discussions and guest speakers the youth participate in weekly wellness activities that include volunteering, group sports and middle school socials.
The Youth Leadership Program has served over 100 different youth in the last two years. The program has provided Vera Court youth with leadership opportunities and positive options during countless "high-risk" hours.
