GOOD Maker: We Helped a Group of Sixth Graders Learn How to Lead

by Julie Ma

July 15, 2012

The first retreat was a success, and the program is set to become an annual, self-sustaining project.

"It was amazing to watch their personal growth. The fact that they can say, 'Ok, I can step up for people. I can be a guiding hand for those who are a little lost,'" Keleher says. The goal is for this year's attendees to take the reins and help lead next year's campers. Keleher and Lanning also hope to write a manual for AmeriCorps that will allow other schools to follow in their footsteps.

We're glad we could help.
