Leadership Greater Hartford is a 15 week program I joined my junior year to gain leadership skill and engage in service. The program consists of students from all around the greater hartford area, which has given me the opportunity to form relationships from people outside of my sheltered community.This years service projected was to raise money and donate christmas gifts to women in recovery at the Coram Deo Recovery center.
"Introducing young people to the real-world application of concepts like diversity, collaboration, conflict resolution, and leadership is energizing and empowering. Common Ground brings high school students together from urban and suburban schools to provide a forum to exchange ideas, experiences — and laughs! In this age of being constantly “wired in,” the value of genuine interpersonal connections has never been more significant."
