Arrowhead United Way's Young Leadership Council held another successful quarterly "Lunch with a Leader" hosted by the San Bernardino City Police Department on January 31. During the event the exceptional leader, San Bernardino City Police Chief Robert Handy, discussed his insights in regard to various topics on leadership development, life-long learning, and community involvement.
Before going into detail about his past experience and his development into a leader, Chief Handy thanked the members of the Council for working to become leaders in the community and being a part of the United Way; he said that both were very important. One piece of advice that he highlighted that has served him well was to "take a problem and to look at it as an opportunity."
As part of the event, participants received a tour of the San Bernardino City Police Station led by Lieutenant Tully, Officer Mata, and Sergeant Shank. Sincere thanks to Chief Handy and the Young Leadership Council members and organizers of the event, and Lieutenant Tully for his ongoing efforts to the Council.
The mission of Arrowhead United Way's Young Leadership Council is to promote early grade literacy, be actively engaged in the community, and inspire philanthropy and volunteerism by collaboratively partnering with the next generation of decision-makers in a unique blend of service, education, social, and networking activities throughout the year.
