The Agora Vets: The mission of this club is to propel Agora leaders forward in their leadership in the school, their communities and neighborhoods and globally with real life concerns.

The club will be housed in the OLMS as we will share tasks, projects, initiatives, concerns and ways to lead and address at Agora and beyond. The club’s mission is to help others in need, whether that is helping a fellow newbie who is struggling in class, helping a veteran student who is struggling with content, or helping global concerns by coming together to create a mission to help others in need implement positive change. This club will be excellent for students entering college as it is a leadership club with the intent on creating confidence, drive, commitment and follow through.
