Through community development programs, youth develop and exercise leadership skills, gain a greater awareness of their civic responsibilities, participate in service projects, be represented on community decision bodies, and be engaged, well-informed citizens who are active in their local and global communities. 

Through leadership development programs youth develop important life skills, including:
