Take the Lead!® Training
Take the Lead!® is a program focused on fostering leadership skills in youth aged 11-14.

Our youth know how to play best! Utilizing Take the Lead!® resources and training, youth can practice leading active play opportunities, providing more physical activity opportunities for their peers.

Because of Take the Lead!® training, SPRA is confident that these same youth will later draw upon these skills as they reinvest in our communities.
