Our Leadership Council is a prestigious, hand-picked group of community leaders who assist the Humanity Project in many ways. These parent/child teams help create program content that will appeal to other parents and kids. They serve as consultants and advisers. And they are ambassadors to help carry our ideas and programs into the local community and beyond. The Leadership Council was first created under a generous grant from State Farm as part of the Humanity Project’s I Care teen driver safety program.
