The UNITY (United, Neighboring, Interdependent, Trusted Youth) Program of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition is looking for teenagers, ages 14-19, interested in learning leadership skills and making a difference in their community.
Participants will be part of a diverse team of 20 students from area high schools.
This program, now in its ninth year, is a free opportunity for teenagers to gain leadership skills through fun, creative, youth-led community service projects. Activities that address communication skills, diversity, decision-making, and teambuilding are central to the program.
The group meets from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Oct. 8 to June 10, at the nbCC offices. Refreshments will be served and free transportation is available to and from students’ homes.
No previous leadership experience is required. Interested youth can apply online at www.nbccoalition.org/forms.
