Warriors Ignite

About Warriors Ignite

Warriors Ignite (or Youth Leadership Council) was started in the 2006-2007 school year in Van Buren County.  The students decided they wanted to fight issues of drug and alcohol abuse alongside tobacco prevention. They voted and decided to call themselves the Youth Leadership Council.

In the fall of 2016 the Youth Leadership Council decided to join forces with the Wellness Council.  This will allow them to address a variety of prevention issues in the community.  They voted and decided to change their name to Warriors Ignite.
