How do i help at my Middle School as a Future Folk?
Since Future Folk is a leadership development program; one of the really neat things that being a part of Future Folks allows students to do is serve as a Future Folk Leader at one of our 27 middle schools. Many of our Future Folk return to their middle school to serve. To serve as a Future Folk Leader at a middle school, high school students must attend future folk meetings.
