Leadership Program

This selective semester-long program trains current high school students in the community to become successful driven leaders. This program leaves kids with a multitude of leadership skills designed to serve them in future endeavors even beyond their high school environments. By allowing students to step outside the classroom and get involved in a variety of community organizations, and truly make a difference in the lives of others.

Facilitated by the CARES Executive Director, Ellen Brezovsky, LCSW students are able to grow individually and alongside their peers in a supportive and fun environment. This knowledge filled program leaves students capable and confident to take on the next avenue in their life. Admittance into Leadership Program is by nomination: parent, peer, self, faculty, and/or community leader. Nominations may be sent to CARESinfo@newcanaanCARES.org.
