During this weekend, 31 students participated in the iChoose Youth Leadership Values Program. The iChoose Program comprises of 16 lessons (we covered 8 of them) intending to help teenagers learn leadership values and teach them how to apply them to their own lives from leadership expert John C. Maxwell. These values are recognized by some of the largest and most successful companies in the world.
