Seven NTHS Students Complete Leadership Niagara’s Youth Development Program
For the past eight months, a group of seven NTHS students have
used their spare time to learn about leadership. Chosen to be part of
Leadership Niagara’s Youth Development program, the students explored a topic a
month since the fall.
The student leaders heard from industry experts
and community leaders throughout the course of the eight-month program
along with learning leadership development concepts and principles,
characteristics and values, problem-solving, communication, diversity and
inclusion, teamwork and collaboration. The students also had
executive-level coaches and mentors to guide them through each month's sessions
and through their team projects.
William Alvarado, Danielle DalPorto, Valerie Granites, Aidan
McMahon, Jessica Robins, Cody Sikora and Elisabeth Williams received
certificates during a Leadership Niagara graduation program on March 16 at the Cornell
Cooperative Extension of Niagara County’s Training Center.
Leadership Niagara earned fully funded scholarships for
100 students per year to participate in the program through a grant made
possible through the generous support of the Irene Witkowski Agrawal
Foundation. In addition, over 60 volunteers, 12 organizations, and 13
schools have helped make this year's program a great success.
