Leaders to Watch

Women to WatchThis page is dedicated to the leaders who never hesitate to “Step UP and INTO Leadership” roles. You have met them…you may even be one of these incredible “Leaders To Watch”.

They are weaving a tapestry that is strong, beautiful and meaningful to our community! They are touching lives and helping to empower others to reach their full potential.

These leaders understand the value and benefit that HALO and our mentoring and leadership development program, Teens & Leaders Connect (TLC), delivers to the community.

We salute the leaders who have supported this important program that was first launched as The M.I.S.S. Program in 2009, then as TLC in October 2010 and our first Co-Ed TLC in January 2012.

We thank the wonderful WOMEN mentors who supported our Teens & Leaders Connect Program (2010 and 2012). They know how ONE DAY can impact a life forever. Some of these leaders were sponsors and some attended both Conferences and for that loyal support…we are so grateful. We look forward to seeing you again in 2014!!
