In addition to building this valuable life skill, it helps youth track their learning experiences, events, and skill development for future job and scholarship applications.  

As a reminder, completed record books are due to the office on or before January 7th 2019!  If you are unsure as to where to start, refer to the guidelines provided on the project record book forms or contact  Sarah Miller  for help.
