Area Teens participate in 2012 Youth Leadership Academy
Twenty-one youth from Isle, Nay Ah Shing, and Onamia school communities participated in the Minnesota Youth Leadership Academy October 29 and 30 in Baxter Minnesota along with their adult leaders Shannon Frazier, Amber Kent, Nicole True, Amanda Nickaboine, and Geri Pohlkamp. In total, over one-hundred and fifty youth leaders from across Minnesota participated in this training. The training was provided by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division. The twenty-one youth leaders who attended learned about youth leadership and how they can continue to work in their community to help reduce underage alcohol use. This grant was written and is managed by Rum River Health Services in Princeton.
