I can not say enough about Running Start. My daughter attended the program in the summer before her junior year('07). It provided her with the confidence and leadership skills to try things she would have never done before. She was able to run a successful campaign for Young Dems and has gone on to participate in numerous activities through the information and emails that she receives from Running Start. She plans on continuing her relationship with Running Start when she is in college and this alone is a testament to the invaluable experience it affords young women.I know that my daughter plans on writing a review with more specifics details but I did want to encourage the "powers to be" to provide Running Start with whatever it needs to continue The Young Women's Leadership Program. Thank you.
