Workshops held to encourage teen leadeship

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Leaders of tomorrow got together at Buffalo’s Bennett High School, to learn how to succeed.

About 200 seventh and eighth graders took part in Saturday’s Teens in Leadership Training Youth Summit.

Organizers hope workshops in leadership, entrepreneurship, diversity and bullying will help them improve their civil engagement and become leaders in high school, college and the work force.

“They can have some benefit in the community, they can have opportunities where they can really stretch their wings and begin to fly as leaders in their neighborhoods,” said Kenya Hobbs, a community engagement specialist.

The workshop was put together by the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Community Council, which is working to improvement at schools in the northeast portion of Buffalo.
