About Us

Leaders After Hours is a local community  outreach program that assists grades 6-12 with  developing skills that will assist them throughout their lives, including problem  solving, reflection, communication, writing, public speaking, and more.

More important to the students (generally): This is a fun way to meet a LOT of really interesting, cool people and have fun doing stuff like writing. Plus you get to be a published author and/or artist, which is pretty sweet! 

Leaders  After Hours students’ written and  creative visual work, as well as that of other area students are featured regularly in our parent company’s publications and websites. Gatehouse Media, which owns The Leader, The Horseheads Shopper, and The Steuben Courier Advocate, as well as hundreds of other newspapers and digital media companies nation wide.
