Take Action, Create Awareness, Advocate!

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Take Action, Create Awareness, Advocate!

Team Rockin’ Top Shelfers partnered with Project 16:49 to create an Advocacy Committee that will provide communication and representation of the organization’s needs to the community. This committee will focus on any needs or struggles of the organization. Examples of current support needed for Project 16:49 include: establishing a financial basis for unaccompanied youth, initiating and establishing a network of credible landlord connections, and finally, supporting changes to state statutes. The Top Shelfers participated in the Lip Sync Battle for Project 16:49 and raised more than $3,500 for the program.
