Youth Leadership

campYouth leadership provides all participating youth with team building and leadership skills. This offers the youth the opportunity to serve as peer prevention role models and to participate in events and activity planning guided by adults. Participants also have the opportunity to collaborate with county wide youth at events and training workshops.  Youth leadership encourages volunteering and being involved in community service.

Heart to Heart, formerly the Sr. SCAT Crew is our youth group for high school students. We’re always looking for new members who want to make an impact in their community, become a better leader, be part of a collaborative team, and make new friends. Students will participate in volunteer opportunities that involve hands-on projects in the community, be peer mentors, attend state leadership workshops, attend monthly SCAT board meetings, give presentations to youth and adults, and take an active role in organizing and executing SCAT events.  Volunteer hours can also be counted toward their schools’ Interact organization.
