Approximately 80 students from more than 33 public and private high schools in Jefferson and Shelby Counties recently spent a week making new friends, learning leadership skills in discussing difficult and pressing community topics and building their resume for college applications. The camp called “Anytown Alabama” is designed to give students in grades 9 through 11 a greater understanding of each other, and the skills to discuss their differences and similarities with others. The program seeks to help students realize that they are different from one another but can still be united. Anytown Alabama was started by the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) in 1989, and since 2011, the YWCA and NCCJ have partnered to present the annual summit. Teens interested in being a delegate at the 2019 Anytown Alabama Leadership Summit, June 2-8, 2019, can apply now at www.ywcabham.org/anytown-alabama. †
