For Homeschool Students

 

The Brigade is a leadership development organization that has served youth in the Fox Cities since 1900. We do this through hands-on, volunteer-led activities that teach employability and life skills. The time frame of this Building Leaders program offering is designed to accommodate the schedule of homeschool families so youth can experience our time-tested activities for 5th-12th graders.

Learn more at our Open House on September 12th from 3-5pm.
