Youth Leadership Squad

Each year, 5-10 youth apply to participate in the group. The leadership group runs itself as they pick their own officers and set their own annual goals. They do community service projects for FFRC and for other organizations in the community and will also bring in guest speakers to lecture on leadership, civic engagement, philanthropy, and other similar topics. Youth that successfully commit to the group for a year may be eligible for a paid summer position in FFRC's summer enrichment camp. All youth are able to use their experience in the Youth Leadership Squad as a stepping stone towards higher education or employment.
