- Earn Community Service Hours
- Develop leadership skills
- Gain valuable experience for college and jobs
- Make new friends!
Regular meetings will be held on the first Monday of every month from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.- beginning August 1, 2016.
- Minimum age: going into 7th grade; Maximum age: going into 12th grade.
