Monterey area students take part in Californial leadership conference

Montana Sprague, a homeschooled junior, and Michelle Vu, a sophomore at York School, attended the Edge Youth Leadership Conference at UC Berkeley earlier this month.

About 160 high school sophomores from all over California attended the three-day conference, designed to cultivate students’ communication skills, foster their capacity for teamwork, and help them build resilience in the face of obstacles.

Prague is a member of the board of directors for Star Riders, Aria Monterey Women’s Choir, and the Sea Sweepers underwater robotics team. She also works part-time at the Riding Academy and as a math tutor at Monterey Peninsula College.

Vu was chosen to represent York School by teachers and administrators as EDGE allows only one student per high school to attend its conference.

Over the past 14 years, EDGE has trained and encouraged thousands of young leaders in the region.
Each year, EDGE students participate in a variety of leadership exercises, including hands-on activities and opportunities to engage with well-renowned speakers.
