Building Future Leaders & Entrepreneurs

This free summer program for teenagers combines experiential, collaborative, and project-based learning to empower students to make a difference in their lives, families, school, community, and world. 

Through small and large group discussions, team-building activities, journaling, and community engagement, students will actively pursue and learn relevant leadership topics such as: personality awareness, core values, the importance of character, critical thinking, problem solving, time management, and attitude while taking a peek at entrepreneurism.

This class runs from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Monday through Thursday, from June 7 to July 1 at the Central Illinois Connection Center in Chatsworth.  Although this year’s class is already in progress, we would love to have your participation next year!

If you have any questions, please call Jodi Martin (CEO of Boys & Girls’ Club of Livingston County) at (847)989-8464, or email her at  We hope to hear from you!
