CAC Leadership Club
At the Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County, we believe that advocacy plays a fundamental role in promoting healthy development for children within our community. We believe that through our efforts we will reduce trauma to child victims of abuse. It is through our intervention, treatment, and prevention services that we believe we can make an impact within our community. The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County's Leaderhsip Club will serves as an extension of these services and efforts.
CAC Lapeer's Leadership Club is a peer leadership program geared toward enhancing civic engagement and leadership development through diverse educational opportunities for students throughout the Lapeer County area. Students will have the opportunity to engage with classmates, educate the community, and gain leadership skills using critical thinking to enhance community knowledge surrounding various social issues. By partnering with the Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County, students will have the opportunity to learn different ways to advocate for themselves and their peers as they will be provided with knowledge and resources surrounding a variety of social issues.
Through CAC Lapeer's Leadership Program, students will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, engage in community development, and develop into active citizens through direct community involvement.
