High School students are encouraged to sign up for UNITOWN 2014
 

High school students are invited to attend “UNITOWN 2014” - a Youth Leadership and Diversity weekend. UNITOWN is “A place to learn how each of us is different and discover how each of us is alike!” Hosted by the Coral Springs Multi-Cultural Advisory, this retreat is designed for high school students who live in Coral Springs or who attend Coral Springs schools. To enhance the diversity experience, students from the City of Lauderhill are also invited to participate.

Students will attend Gold Coast Camp in Lake Worth, Florida from Saturday, February 15 to Monday, February 17, 2014. The program will be facilitated by trained adult advisors and highly qualified professionals, who will focus on eliminating prejudices and bias while developing appreciation and sensitivity towards cultural differences. Several other segments of the weekend training program focus on developing leadership skills and instill an interest in the importance of volunteering in school or the community at large.

Preference is given to recruiting freshmen, sophomores and juniors to give them an opportunity to put this valuable training into effect in their communities and schools. Seniors may be considered if space permits. A deposit of $50 is requested to hold the student’s spot, half of which is refunded upon completion of the program. The City of Coral Springs funds the expenses for the rest of the program, with the help of local sponsors. Students who graduate from this program are afforded leadership opportunities in their schools and community. They are encouraged to join City Advisory Committees or get involved in community events and programs, thus enhancing their leadership skills and preparing them for their college experience. Students who are interested in participating should contact Lydia Cutz at 954-344-1063 or lcutz@coralsprings.org by December 20.
