Junior Student Leadership members focus on community volunteerism
Members of the Fort Bend Independent School District Junior Student Leadership Program recently visited local nonprofits as part of the group's focus on leadership in community volunteerism.
According to a press release from the school district, "The group's first visit was to CASA House to meet with Ruthanne Mefford, executive director of Child Advocates of Fort Bend; and Metoyer Ellis, program director of CASA House. Following their trip to CASA House, the cohorts visited Bethel Ministries, where they had the opportunity to meet with Carolyn Tarver, founder of Project SMILE; and Becky Torres, director of Mission Outreach. The students ended their session in the FBISD Administration Board Room, where they enjoyed lunch, followed by their first Strengths Finder lesson, led by Yolanda Young, coordinator in FBISD's Department of Organizational Development."
