On Friday, April 6, while high school teachers and parents were busy with parent-teacher conferences, over 110 high school students gathered together in MPR2 for the annual YISS Student Leadership Conference. The event was required for all students who wish to hold leadership positions in the Student Council, clubs, and extracurricular groups for the upcoming school year.

Leadership Conference

A variety of speakers both from within YISS and outside of YISS presented workshops designed to give students more “tools” for their leadership “toolbox.” The topics ranged from “Dealing with Negativity & Conflict,” to “Building Community,” and “Servant Leadership.” The sessions were interactive, and students had opportunities to connect with each other and with the speakers. The conference was a fruitful experience for all involved as they prepared to take their clubs and groups to the next level.
