Emerge Presents at the Leadership Training Institute
Alia Whitney-Johnson, Emerge Executive Director, and Ellen Sojka, Emerge Business Director, presented at the Leadership Training Institute on April 6, 2008.
“The goal of the Leadership Training Institute is to teach motivated high school students the philosophy behind leadership, the importance of teamwork, and to promote self-reflection and the comprehension of self-identity.” (http://www.mitlti.org/about/).
They shared the Emerge story with the eager group of high school students and helped brainstorm about the high schoolers’ own projects. Through sharing the Emerge story, Emerge hopes to encourage other young people to passionately work for social change.
