Dublin sixth graders were targeted for a new addition to Leadership Dublin. The new plan, entitled “Leadership Dublin: The Next Generation,” aimed to develop good decision-making skills and leadership potential in Dublin area youth. Leadership Dublin hoped to gain interest and involvement from the community. Topics such as respect, responsibility and fairness were discussed during six sessions in the spring of 2004.
Leadership Dublin’s goal was to start the program with sixth graders at one Dublin middle school, and expand the program the following year into three schools. This was achieved with the help of the Dublin Foundation, and more community youth learned valuable life lessons to help them grow both mentally and educationally.
