November provided a great opportunity for the Roy Communities That Care (CTC) Youth Council. They were fortunate to attend a Youth Leadership Training at our Roy OWCAP offices with author, TEDX speaker, and marathoner, Stacy Bernal. Stacy led a group discussion on how to recognize one’s own inner strengths, ignore the noise and labels assigned by other people, and realize a bright future filled with one’s passions and interests.
With Stacy’s coaching, the youth each made their own vision boards filled with inspirational quotes and pictures to help them visualize their goals and aspirations for their future. After a catered meal from Bella’s, the youth left feeling well-fed and more enabled to overcome challenges and accomplish their goals.
The Roy CTC Youth Council works to help reduce underage drinking, substance use, and reduce suicides. Throughout the year, they hold school and community service projects and learn about civic involvement to promote good policies for our community and state.
