Skyline YEP Attends Conference at Drury University

The Skyline Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) group went to Drury college on Oct. 17.
At the beginning of the conference, the students listened to Kellie Harper, Missouri State Lady Bears basketball coach give an inspiring keynote address.  Shortly after, the group split up and attended classes taught by YEP students from other districts.
In the small group topics, the students were able to gain and share ideas about projects, fundraisers, and ways they can help their community.  Constructing and writing grants was among these topics, and the local group learned how to manage and put together a grant application, so they will be able to offer grants to teachers this spring for classroom projects.
