I was simply amazed at the in-depth preparation and strategic execution that each student group presented. I was also enthralled by the serious subject matters along with the level of detail and commitment that these high school students conveyed. Each was well-spoken and truly showed compassionate care and believed they could help make a difference in the people whose lives they touched. It speaks volumes of this leadership program as <strong>it’s refreshing to see high school students care so much about others, especially when they put their great minds and caring hearts together</strong>. Our community and this world truly stands a chance of being a better place with such bright young minds committed to making a difference!</div><div class="arrow"></div></div><div class="testimonials-author"><div class="author-info"><p class="name">Courtney Conlon</p><p class="title">CEO, Pacifica Chamber of Commerce</p></div></div></div>
