Participants will be provided with the tools and resources necessary to achieve higher levels of success, a meaningful and relevant voice in the world around them, and position them to be positive contributing leaders and thinkers.

"We are excited to provide a safe place for participants to feel supported, a place for youth to connect with each other in a nonjudgmental and positive environment and a place where young leaders can cultivate their personal leadership skills and explore how to make a positive impact in their community," said Kandee Lewis, PRC Executive Director.

Their goal is to build a positive and engaging rapport between youth and family, schools, faith and community-based partners, law enforcement, social services, and local Chamber of Commerce to create healthy personal and professional relationships, understand resources each organization provides and understand no matter the position, each man or woman is a real person, worthy of respect
