I Lead

I lead is an afterschool program designed to involve youth and young adults in community projects that are created and led by youth ages 10-17 and young adults ages 18-24 throughout the Winston-Salem Community. Young men and ladies will be involved in numerous projects that they will collectively create as a group and implemented around the Winston-Salem area. Projects will consist of volunteer works in the community. Parents are encouraged to attend all final projects in support of their youth and/or young adult.

Service-learning is learning that actively involves students and young adults in a wide range of experiences, which often benefit others and the community, while also advancing the goals of a given subject or community concern. All service-learning activities are community-based service activities that are paired with structured preparation and student and young adult reflection.

Middle, High School & College students are encouraged to register!
