"We are the Majority" Rally
Westshore Young Leaders from Westlake, Rocky River and Lakewood high schools joined more than 100 other high school youth leaders, school officials, resource officers, parents and professionals from Cuyahoga County at the "We are the Majority" Rally in late April. The purpose of the rally was to raise awareness that the majority of youth make healthy choices and do not use drugs and alcohol. The rally looks to be an annual event for all schools in Cuyahoga County to actively participate.
Students from across the county gathered at the Cleveland Public Library to participate in team-building activities facilitated by Poplar Ridge Adventures. Following the team-building activities, with a large banner and posters in hand, the students marched to City Hall to listen to speakers, including Jaclyn and Nolan Brandt of Robby's Voice who inspired attendees to continue to make good choices.
The Westshore Young Leaders will continue its monthly meetings and programming with the Annual Leadership Conference this fall. For youth or parent membership information, call 440-250-9916.
