October 12, 2017
The 2017-18 Youth Leadership class of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce successfully raised $1,804 in funding support for Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland’s home construction fund this year as part of their annual service project.
 
The twenty-six juniors and seniors from Bradley Central, Cleveland and Walker Valley High Schools and Tennessee Christian Preparatory School will also volunteer “sweat equity” later this school year by painting and landscaping at Habitat homes.
 
At the summer Youth Leadership retreat, organizers challenged the youth leaders to brainstorm creative ideas to raise funds for Habitat and raise a minimum of $400 at their respective schools.  Sherry Crye, coordinator of the Youth Leadership program shared, “We are pleased with this year’s efforts as they learn the importance of giving back to their community.”  
 
Youth Leadership is a workforce development program of the Chamber of Commerce designed to prepare young people for leadership in Cleveland and Bradley County. For information about the program, contact Sherry Crye with the Chamber at 423-472-6587.
