Leadership Class of 2022 Class Project

For its class project, the Leadership Columbia County Class of 2022 chose to bring community awareness and support for the mission of the Community Foundation of the CSRA’s Resilient Teen Program.

The class selected this program in response to the dramatic increase of teen suicide rates in Columbia County and surrounding areas. Resilient Teens teaches teens coping and life skills with the aim to improve the resiliency of individuals and families.

LCC 2022 hosted the "Rounds for Resiliency" Clay Shoot, and raised over $20,000 to donate to the program. These funds will help sponsor at least 10 Columbia County Teens and help facilitate the 1st ever Resilient Teens Summer Conference.

In addition to a monetary donation, LCC class members created a digital video library consisting of personal resiliency testimonies and basic life skills. The library will be shown to teens during future programs.
