A Free the Children initiative is taking the front seat at Buck Mountain Central School in March.

On March 28 the school is hosting a Mini We Day during the afternoon.

“It’s a Free the Children initiative to develop leadership skills,” said Addison Allan, a student in the school’s Grade 8 and 9 leadership class.

Allan says motivational speakers will attend the event, along with students, to help them gain leadership skills and increase involvements with youth.

Free The Children believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. It is an international charity and educational partner that empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens.
