In the words of the mother of a 2012 YLF delegate:
“Empowering“, “motivating“, and “building self-confidence” are three thoughts that came to mind after we picked T up from the Ohio Youth Leadership Forum. “No one judged me for what I can and cannot do, and they made me feel as if we were friends and family forever,” T says.
We feel T was given the opportunity of a lifetime and he grew so much from this experience. He made many new friends and keeps in touch with them by phone and computer.
The program made a significant change in his outlook on life. He seems more outgoing and tries to see everything from more than one point of view!
