Hundreds of high school students participated in TAKE THE LEAD at the 14th Annual Teem Summit on Friday, March 12, 2010 at California State University, Fullerton. It was the larges youth conference of its kind in Southern California. TAKE THE LEAD is designed to promote volunteerism, develop leadership skills and increase awareness of social trends at the local, state and national levels. Students participated in over 20 interactive workshops focusing on service, leadership and civic engagement.
