2016 Training In Leadership Program (TIL)
The Training In Communications program gives students a quality learning experience and a challenge in which they can develop life skills. The program also involves providing youth role-models and support systems through one-on-one mentorships with BIG members. The general community will benefit from this program because it is a proven method of directing our youth toward activities for personal enhancement. The better our youth feel about themselves the more they will strive to become productive and successful adults.
