Lead Now a Community Conversations Event 

The Harvey County Leadership Summit is a day-long experience that encompasses a wide variety of fun activities. First, youth will start with getting to know each other. Next, youth will attend a Visual Thinking Strategies session to strengthen their communication and interpretive skills. Finally, after a short lunch break, they will experience a community conversation on Alcohol, facilitated by youth leaders.

Visual Thinking strategies is an arts-based approach to dialogue that incorporates visual art to inspire deep discussion. This program, developed by the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art in conjunction with K-State Research and Extension incentivizes critical thinking and team building.

Community Conversations is the highlight event of the summit. This 4-hour session will center around the topic of Alcohol. Youth will come together in small groups to discuss and deliberate with the help of trained youth facilitators. Afterwards, they will give a short group presentation over the common ground that they have reached as well as an action plan.

Join us on October 23rd from 10:00-4:00 at Salem United Methodist Church. Registere here for the event
