On September 5th, 2014, Leaders UNITE held their first meeting of the school year at the Cary Academy high school. The students learned about the goals and purposes of Leaders UNITE, did the “Find Someone Who” activity and discussed ways to improve their performance, and also discussed the “Should a leader incorporate his.her morals and beliefs into a task?” discussion question. At the end of the club, the students finishing filling out their “Leaders UNITE first day forms.”
Overall, it was a successful first club meeting! Notes and opinions about the discussion question are posted under the discussion question’s comment section.

They will all begin incorporating Leaders UNITE into their AVID program at school during this school year. AVID, similar to Leaders UNITE, strives to help students achieve success. We are excited to add these schools to our group!
