|About||YMCA Youth Leadership Initiative - Four main components of the project: philanthropy, community service, fitness and leadership development.|
Project North is an innovative youth leadership project involving 12 youth from across Sarnia-Lambton. The project has been designed to build upon the mission based priorities of the YMCA. This project involves participants in a wide variety of leadership development experiences with a special focus on community service and philanthropy. Participants are gaining insight into their personal leadership potential and abilities, group dynamics, communication, volunteerism and philanthropy as well as developing a new perspective and sense of responsibility.
Costs of the project will be offset by participant fundraising, community service and event-based fundraising, as well as small business and corporate sponsorships. Our hope is to give all youth this opportunity, without financial barriers inhibiting their participation. The YMCA asks for your support as a donor to make this project a success; to ensure that this dynamic team of young people are given a solid foundation to become tomorrow’s leaders.
