The purpose of Culmore Leadership Day is to motivate rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders into developing their leadership skills. They will also learn how to lead healthy lives through physical activity. Culmore is a neighborhood where youth are exposed to drugs and violence every day, so they don’t usually go outside to play. Culmore Leadership Day hopes to engage youth in activities they can do when they’re bored or with their friends. The youth will receive guidance and advice from student leaders as to how they can incorporate physical activity into their day, and be safe at the same time. This program is specifically for rising sixth graders because entering middle school is like entering a whole new world where they are more independent and many times students tend to get lost in the crowd.
