Youth face several issues including neglect, abuse, poverty, crime, teenage pregnancy, drugs, and mental disorders among many others. All of these problems result in a greater lack of self esteem for those children involved. Who is responsible? In reality, it is a combination of factors. To make a difference, we researched the leadership opportunities of elementary aged students in the community, and little was found. In hopes of facilitating change we chose one of these areas, the community, to focus on and began to pioneer our own leadership program at the William Byrd Community House.
