Guard Teen Leadership Council gives youths chance to give back

February 8th, 2011 by Nancy K. Lake in News

Emily Hulberg, Missouri National Guard's Teen Leadership Council, helps Gen. Duncan J. McNabb and his wife with their package for Operation Homefront. McNabb is the commander of the U.S. Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.

The Missouri National Guard Child and Youth Program has taken on a new focus: leadership development and community service among teens.

With this in mind, the program formed the Teen Leadership Council, said Abigail Rolbiecki, child and youth coordinator for the Missouri National Guard.

Members of the council work with the adult sponsors to organize monthly meetings, activities and service projects for Missouri National Guard children between the ages of 13 and 18.
