"Through the Greater Green Bay Teen Leadership Program, I have become a better leader by facing new challenges, enhancing my interpersonal skills, and meeting other teens who want to make a difference in our community.

Some aspects of the program I really enjoyed were touring facilities, specifically downtown Green Bay, and interacting with guest speakers especially the government officials panel from our community. Overall this program has not only made me a better leader but, also a better person."
