SCRANTON — Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) class participants recently collaborated with eight local non-profits, completing more than 170 service hours to help each organization fulfill its mission. Tomorrow’s Leaders Today is Leadership Lackawanna’s youth program.
As part of the TLT program curriculum, class participants learn how to understand, appreciate and experience community service. By helping non-profit organizations, students can further understand their needs and have a greater impact on the community as a young leader. In addition to volunteering for a non-profit, each student participant prepared a presentation providing insight on the mission and needs of the organization they worked with and how they were able to work with them throughout their service hours.
The Leadership Lackawanna Tomorrow’s Leaders Today class of 2016 worked with the following organizations.
• Anthracite Heritage Museum and Scranton Iron Furnaces
• Big Brothers Big Sisters
• Catherine McAuley Center
• Children’s Advocacy Center
• Lackawanna Historical Society
• Little Sisters of the Poor
• NeighborWorks Northeastern PA
• PA Treatment and Healing (PATH)
The goal of the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today program is to develop the leadership, interpersonal and managerial skills of high school juniors and provide real-world experience in the areas of philanthropy and non-profit organizations.
