them improve their leadership skills. Attendees are also provided with the
opportunity to partake into the Horizons Ropes Course Challenge program to
sharpen their team skills and better know their teammates.
conference has witnessed a mounting interest and is now happening three times
during the Spring and Fall. Since 1996, about twenty two Centers from different
regions have been flocking to Horizons Outdoor Learning Center, our conference site to enhance
their leadership, presentation, public speaking skills, and network with other SGA leaders. At the end of the
conference, the SGA from each Job Corps Center will draft and present an Action
Plan to their peers and later to their management staff.
