The Youth Leadership Seminar Continues to Impact

The Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) is quickly approaching.  The schools are the most important part of our event each year. Without them the seminar would not be possible.  We here at the Anthony Muñoz Foundation believe in partnership and we cannot thank the schools enough that make every year great and continue to come back and experience the event.  We would like to give a special shout out to a few schools who are making this year special.

We have 12 schools that will be attending their 11th YLS this year!  They have seen the impact from the seminar and we cannot thank them enough for entrusting us to help empower their students.  Thank you for your continued involvement:

A statistic that we are especially proud of is that 65 of the 74 schools currently registered are attending for a consecutive year!  All of these schools saw the positive effect that the Youth Leadership Seminar had on their students and community and want to further the impact this year.

We have 9 newbie schools that are attending just their second ever YLS this year and we are excited to continue working with them and see their students impact their communities.  We cannot wait to have them pack their bus and come to the next 5, 10 , and even 15 Youth Leadership Seminars!

High Schools Inspiring Community Involvement: Part 2

Last week, we highlighted 5 schools who have taken their leadership skills beyond the classroom and into their community! Now we bring you 5 more who have been dedicated to attending our Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) for almost a decade!

Hamilton High School: 9 Years

 For the students at Hamilton High School, they can’t seem to get enough of our Youth Leadership Seminar! This will be their 9th year with us at YLS! Their 2012 Anti-Bullying campaign led to some serious community involvement earning them the 2012 National School District of Character Award from the Character Education Partnership! We love seeing students and schools being recognized by their community. We cannot wait to see HHS again this year!

Harrison High School: 9 Years

It’s no big secret that AMF has worked pretty closely with Harrison High School students, especially since former Harrison HS graduate, Sean Witzgall is currently interning at AMF! Their most recent service challenge project was their Project Inspired campaign which got students involved in activities to uplift! Harrison High School has been participating at YLS for the past 9 years, and we are excited to say they have registered for their 10th year!

See what Sean had to say about YLS here!

Ross High School: 9 Years

It is 9 years and counting for the Ross High School Rams! Their most recent event was in 2013 which was the creation of a 5K Run in honor of a young student who passed away. They received great support from the community with over 400 participants and raised over $13,000 for juvenile diabetes.

High five, Ross Rams!

St. Henry District High School: 7 Years

There’s nothing better than community involvement and the holiday season. SHDHS, who have been at YLS for 7 years now, got the joy of experiencing just that! Their involvement at YLS lead to a SCP called “‘Crusaders’ Kicks for Kids” that helped collect sporting shoes for inner city children and included a visit from Santa Claus as well! Keep it up, crusaders!

Talawanda High School: 8 Years

Nothing stops Talawanda High School from being involved with YLS.  For their 8th consecutive year at YLS, Talawanda High School created a Service Challenge Project that led to their “Plug into Kindness” campaign, which took place January 2014. The campaign was a huge success! We can’t wait to see what THS “Sparks” at this year’s YLS!

Check out how THS “Plugged into Kindness” here!

A huge round of applause to all our 10 dedicated schools and all the hard work that they continually put into creating a brighter future for their school and community! It inspires AMF to see the positive contributions that all the students put in on a daily basis. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference in the world, and these are some truly great examples! We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our Youth Leadership Seminar to see what “Sparks” them! These are some great examples of Service Challenge Projects, and hopefully you’re brewing up some ideas as well! Interested in learning about the other Service Challenge Projects after YLS? Just follow the hashtag #AMFChallenge! It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!
