L.I.T.E. - Leadership in Training & Education

L.I.T.E. (Leadership in Training & Education) is an after school program for middle school and high school youth who wish to develop skills in leadership, communication and volunteerism. The program requires a commitment from participants to attend the program at least three days a week and 12 days a calendar month, take part in two community service projects a month and maintain good standing in school. L.I.T.E. participants will also have the opportunity to attend enrichment classes, field trips and other service learning opportunities. Each month will focus on a different theme like history, health and fitness, and school goals.  This program runs M-F from 2:30-5:30 at Pine Park and Holiday Park in the L.I.T.E. trailers.  Click HERE to register for the program online. The program only costs $25 per school semester. The program has staff walk kids from Valley Middle School to Pine Park every day, excluding the first day of school. This is great experience for college applications and job resumes. The program is closed during school holidays.
