On November 12, 2015, fifty students from seven Androscoggin County schools came together at the University of Southern Maine Lewiston campus for the Institute’s first, full-day intensive program. Participants spent time connecting with each other and learning how values, personal responsibility and integrity can help them become leaders in their life, career and community.
