Youth Leadership Awareness Day

The GLEAMNS Youth Leadership Program traveled to Irmo, SC to participate in the 11th Annual Youth Leadership Awareness Day. The event was held at the Plex Indoor Sports & Ice facility on August 14, 2018. Students were engaged in fun physical activities, such as ice-skating, obstacle-like courses, and tug-of-war (see photo left), to encourage teamwork, proper communication skills, and physical fitness among the students. Though disguised as "fun," YLP Awareness Day was aimed at developing the overall health and wellness of all attendees.
