Assisting in the development of today’s youth as our future leaders and communicators is an important and specialized focus for Barney. He recognizes that many of today’s youth are missing the essential skills needed to be effective and instrumental leaders. Barney uses unique and time tested techniques to draw out and empower the leader from within the student.
Barney works with students in groups and individually to evaluate what communication and leadership skills they need to be successful. A combined method of mentoring, coaching and connecting are used and Barney usually ends up not only as the Youth Mentor, but a friend.
