We are excited to have had our first “The Point” at the Bean Bar in the Village at Leesburg go off really well.

Eleven local high schoolers converged on the coffee shop prepared to talk about issues which are important to them and their community. After a quick introduction to go over some guidelines for discussion, the youths were split into three topic groups:

All three groups were quite engaging and the students all reported having gotten more out of the experience than they expected. The leadership team is meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 28, to discuss next steps, including the next “The Point.”

A special thanks to the Bean Bar for hosting!
