Teen Lead participants become involved in public service, academic achievement (including college preparation), environmental awareness, character development and physical fitness. They spend time working on community service projects, working as junior counselors at summer camp and fun physical challenges like the Los Angeles Marathon.
The impact on their lives is dramatic. Teen participants build self-confidence, learn to accept and overcome challenges, graduate from high school, attend college, plan for their futures, contribute to their communities and serve as role models to their peers.
