Students collect community input by surveying students and teachers in their school to help them identify the community issues that are most important to their community.
Student Leaders identify Non-Profit Organizations that address those issues, interview the organizations, and vote to decide who and how to help the organization and the cause.
Student Leaders plan and conduct a service project, advocacy campaigns, and/or supply drives. They prepare display boards for and attend the Leaders of Tomorrow Showcase event to share how they made a difference with Community Leaders.
