​​This program is for students in the Shippensburg Area Middle School and High School having difficulty in the school setting.  The students meet once a week to work on different skills, such as communication and conflict resolution. School counselors and teachers can refer students to the program. Both the student and the parents have to agree and give permission for the student to participate.

Teen Leadership Club

The Teen Leadership Club is based out of Shippensburg Area Middle School and High School. It develops adolescents into empowered leaders.  Discussion topics are focused on: integrity, listening, and giving directions, examining stereotypes, communication, assertiveness, and other leadership skills.  The Teen Leadership group also participates in community service activities. Students portraying leadership skills are selected to participate by the school counselors.  If you have questions about the Middle School program, please contact Angie McKee: To learn more about the High School program, please contact us at
