The Anthony Muñoz Foundation will host their 12th annual Youth Leadership Seminar at Xavier University’s Cintas Center on October 9th, 2013 from 7:30am-1:30pm. Nearly 1,500 students from over 100 Tri-State high schools will attend YLS, a free event that teaches students valuable leadership skills and encourages them to get involved in their school, community, and city. This year’s theme, “Plugged-In,” will focus on providing students with tools to utilize technology, empower others and make a difference in their community.
“These are our future leaders. As you start to build these ideas into their lives at a younger age, then, when they get to be adults, graduate from college, or enter the workforce, they will have a major impact on our society,” said Anthony Muñoz.
Students will get to hear from a variety of inspirational leaders from the Tri-State area. John Herman and Ben Crawford of Epipheo, a digital storytelling firm headquartered in Cincinnati, will be two of those community leaders.
Students will also be challenged to take responsibility in their communities through the 2013 Service Challenge. Schools will brainstorm an idea for a community service project that they can implement and will impact their community.
Additionally, the students will be provided lunch by Chick-fil-A, get to participate in breakout sessions with other schools, exchange Q&A with Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, and listen to a live concert by KJ-52.
Established as a non-profit organization in April of 2002, the Anthony Muñoz Foundation’s mission is to engage the Tri-State region to impact youth mentally, physically, and spiritually. The Anthony Muñoz Foundation reaches out to and empowers youth who are struggling, while educating, promoting, recognizing, and rewarding those who excel in all phases of life.
