Kids who never thought of themselves as leaders were given the training session and chosen to lead a group of peers.

Teachers were involved in the activities but allowed the students to be the leaders.

Students who never would have crossed paths otherwise participated in games and discussions together.

Everyone in the school was involved, not just Youth Leadership Through Adventure (YLTA) members.

The school got to see just what YLTA is about and spark an interest in the group.

Students felt heard.

At the end, the whole school participated in a huge game together.
