Every March, the youth councils from around the State of Utah meet for a weekend of team building, leadership training and motivational speakers. This year, 15 of the Taylorsville youth council members participated in this leadership training. From the very beginning, they were immersed in workshops, training exercises and challenges. The theme for this year’s Institute was “I Live to S.O.U.L” (Serve-Overcome-Unite-Lead).
For two full days, these young people listened to speakers who challenged them to overcome any obstacle life throws at them, worked together as a team to create displays describing their service projects and opportunities to serve in their communities. These 400+ teenagers were given the tools to become even greater human beings by reaching outside of themselves and touching the lives of others in their cities. Taylorsville’s youth council set a great example of unity, teamwork and bonding. It was exciting to see them work together and share their own life experiences to bring the “SOUL” back to Taylorsville. Look out! Here they come!
