As part of her volunteer efforts with Leadership Howard County, Deepa Srinivasan spent a fun afternoon with Leadership U students at the Bain Senior Center. The Leadership U class of 2017 comprises 50 students from Howard County’s public, private, and home schools. The students toured the Bain Senior Center, learned about the programs and amenities offered, and listened to a presentation on mental illness by NAMI, which resulted in an engaging discussion.
Leadership U is a program that empowers rising high school juniors to learn by doing. Students work in teams to discuss, reflect upon, and develop solutions for problems that affect them and their peers in the community. They also develop mentoring relationships with adult community leaders, learn about Howard County’s government, businesses and services, and hone their presentation skills.” A truly enriching experience that brings awareness to our youth as it prepares them for the lives ahead of them” says Deepa Srinivasan.
