Ethan Gibson joined teens from Ohio and West Virginia June 25 – July 1 for the Youth Leadership Association’s Leadership Summit at YLA Camp Horseshoe in Tucker County.
During the week, campers engaged in hands-on activities designed to develop and strengthen their leadership skills. They also participated in Model United Nations simulation.
Gibson said that he would definitely recommend the Summit to others. “It’s gonna be the time of your life.” Gibson said. He is an eighth-grade student at Pendleton County Middle/High School.
Tony Antonini, YLA executive director, said, “YLA is open to all. Schools, organizations, and communities find YLA prepares their youth for more effective civic responsibility. Everyone is welcome. Call YLA at 304-478-2481 to get involved.”
YLA Leadership Partners include schools across West Virginia and Ohio, U.S. Forest Service, chambers of commerce, local civic organizations, business, labor, donors, and foundations.
