CENTRAL MARYLAND CHAPTER
Leadership Adventures provide instruction in five areas of leadership including team building, assertiveness, facilitation skills, motivation and time management. Leadership Adventures will be offered conveniently through a series of day-long seminars to be held on Saturdays at area retreat centers. “Young adults are the future of our organization, their community, and their country,” said Carolyn Thompson, Red Cross Youth Services Specialist. “It’s important that we empower them with the skills and tools they’ll need to excel.”
Leadership Adventures participants will gain professional skills they can practice while organizing service-learning projects in the community. Contact us for more information on this exciting new program for 2004!
