Akron, Ohio, May 21, 2019  The Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council (MYLC), in partnership with The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and The University of Akron, will host a “Learn to Lead” Teen Leadership Workshop on Wednesday, June 26th. The daylong workshop is for area students entering 9th through 12th grade in the fall, and will prepare teens for a dynamic 2019-2020 school year. 

     

            “The “Learn to Lead” Teen Leadership Workshop will help area teens to build confidence and improve speaking skills while learning to advocate for causes that can change the Akron Community,” stated Diversity/Training Manager Myra Snipes.

 

            The workshop will be held at The University of Akron’s Jean Hower Taber Student Union from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. There is NO COST to the first 100 participants registered by June 7th.  A $35.00 per person fee will be charged after this date.
