Coral Springs students are invited to a weekend retreat to learn leadership skills along with embracing diversity at this year’s UNITOWN 2016.
UNITOWN’S motto is “A place to learn how each of us is different and discover how each of us is alike!” Students will share their culture, gain a better understanding of other groups, and prepare themselves for leadership roles in their schools and community.
Facilitated by trained adult advisors and highly qualified professionals, they will learn to focus on eliminating prejudices and bias while developing appreciation and sensitivity towards cultural differences. Several other segments of the weekend training program focus on developing leadership skills and instill an interest in the importance of volunteering in school or the community at large.
Students will meet at Coral Glades High School on Friday, November 18 from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, November 19 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for two days of fun, team building activities. Cost is $25 and includes dinner, breakfast, lunch and snacks.
Students who are interested in participating should contact Lydia Cutz at 954-344-1063 or [email protected] by November 4. Coral Glades High School is located at 2700 Sportsplex Drive.
