MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Middle and high school students from across North East Louisiana got a chance to learn a little bit about volunteerism, leadership, and service learning at ULM. This is the first time the Children's Coalition of North East Louisiana has had a Youth Leadership Summit. The coalition brought in different speakers to talk to 200 youth about alcohol abuse, depression, and respect.
This 5-hour summit is the first one of it's kind in Ouachita Parish and the Children's Coalition is hoping this program will help guide students through their adult life.
