On Saturday, January 16th the Keystone Clubs of the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County held a Summit at the Bella Vista Unit. The purpose of the Summit was to plan projects for the coming year. Keystone youth planned projects in the areas of Academic Success, Career Preparation, Community Service, Teen Outreach, and the National Project-Future Readiness. The teens also participated in a team building activity. In the Summit, teens demonstrated an outstanding leadership capacity. Many of them came out of their comfort zone to speak in front of their peers as well as help choose service projects and develop implementation plans for the future. Keystone and their advisers ended the summit with a friendly game of dodgeball in which the advisers won the battle.
