Nearly 200 Omaha high school juniors participated in a leadership conference Wednesday where they took part in activities aimed at growing their personal responsibility and leadership skills.

The conference, hosted by the Midwest nonprofit Youth Frontiers at the NorthStar Foundation in Omaha, included students served by Omaha educational organizations College Possible and Avenue Scholars. The students were engaged in music and leadership activities throughout the day, where they interacted with leaders and peers to learn skills they can bring back to their schools and communities.

Arvin Frazier, the executive director of College Possible, said the conference shows students their potential for being leaders and for effecting change in their communities.

“One of the things that I would say, again, is that they can accept personal responsibilities," Frazier said. "Change starts with them and change can occur through them, and that they are leaders and they’re talented and capable of so much.”

Frazier said the atmosphere at the conference was lively and engaging. This was the fourth year of the Youth Frontiers Leadership Conference in Omaha.
