My Leadership Team Summit Takeaways

Hello! My name is Roger and I am a rising junior attending Granby High School. This is my first year being on the Y Street team and the Y Street Leadership Team (YSLT). Being a part of Y Street has taught me more than I anticipated, and joining YSLT is a decision that I will never regret. I personally enjoyed the virtual YSLT Summit held in July.

Being a YSLT member is definitely nerve-racking. I was afraid that I would mess up or that I wouldn’t be good enough for the role, but my team members and the Y Street staff have been a tremendous help. I have many fond memories of the Summit; one of them is meeting my ‘ZOOMmate’ Max. It was very refreshing meeting someone new and getting to know them. The Summit also offered various activities that we could participate in, such as a Virtual Escape Room, and I enjoyed building a repository for our future goals in Y Street!  Overall, it was a great learning experience and bonding moment to meet new YSLT members. 

This Summit experience has given me a lot to ponder. I was able to collaborate with team members and learn new methods to be more productive. It has taught me how to be a better leader, a better advocate, and a better communicator. I look forward to starting the school year with my YSLT members!
