Youth Development

STARS facilitates youth development through developing youth leaders and involving all students in service learning or community volunteerism. Student Executive Councils (SECs) are made up of students who choose to take on leadership roles related to student substance use, violence, and improving their school climates. Students participate in youth leadership training such as the Joe M. Rodgers Leadership Conference held every October. SECs lead universal prevention activities in their school as well as plan and carry out serving learning and community service projects in order to heighten youth civic responsibility and involvement.
