"Emerging Youth Leaders" (EYL) - This mentoring program features HU students from our Student Leadership Institute who wish to pass on to ETS students, traits of a good leader. These students mentor in areas such as interviewing, public speaking, resume writing, and many other topics designed to prepare ETS students for leadership roles.

This mentoring group meets every other Wednesday and offers a variety of activities to help these ETS students meet their full potential.
