LEADS Youth Summit Celebration


At the beginning of May, the Leduc Center for Civic Engagement hosted its second annual Youth Summit Celebration on
the UMASS Dartmouth campus. LEADS students from participating schools attended the event and the celebration
began with a warm welcome and opening remarks. Corps members then broke the students into teams and took
them on a tour of the campus via the “Amazing Race.” After the teams completed the clues at each station, they
participated in one of three service projects: making cards for kids in a Boston, birdhouses for each school, or no-
sew pillows for a family shelter in New Bedford.

After a pizza lunch, the students enjoyed a special guest, Tem, a local artist who raps about the topic of
Sustainability through hip hop and engages the students through his lyrics. Students from each school then took the
stage and presented to the audience activities, projects, and field trips they had done and shared lessons they had
learned throughout the year. Each participant received a certificate of service as recognition for their hard work as
change agents in their community.
