New friends joined us on Saturday for a fun time and valuable lesson. Youth who attended Camp LEAD and students we recently met in the classroom joined our growing community. 

Teandra Gordon PhD LMFT-S, a passionate healthcare professional and author of Purpose Filled Parenting, connected with our LEADers and parents this weekend. She reminded our students of their value through activities and led an engaging conversation about the importance of establishing healthy relationships.

Student LEADers learned to look within and described themselves with powerful "I AM" statements. Our LEADers are:

  • kind
  • helpful
  • creative
  • brave
  • energetic
  • thoughtful 
  • smart
  • valuable

...and so much more! With strong values and a sense of self, student LEADers will build bridges that lead to healthy relationships.
