What it is
A six-month series of meetups (October-March) about Leadership and Fun dedicated to Romanian American Teens in the Chicago area.
You have to be 13+ to signup.
This is a unique opportunity to:
- develop leadership skills,
- make new friends,
- have some fun,
- be part of a uniquely strong community of amazing kids
We meet, we talk, and we have fun. Every month we discuss a different topic of interest, and we may watch some videos and have guided discussions.
At every meetup, we have time to socialize, play games, watch a movie, or we may have a little party.
