Student Quote:

“I have really enjoyed building relationships with my peers and learning a lot of life skills in class and in activities. In my track based class, I’ve learned a lot more than I would have in school, and the small class makes it easier to discuss ideas and I’ve gained a lot from that. I’ve learned the importance of being a leader and the qualities of one through different activities and deep discussions. I have really enjoyed this first week, and look forward to what’s next.”
