MISSOULA, Mont. -

Missoula teens are learning skills to stop bullying and become positive leaders.

Today, sheriff's deputies and the John Maxwell Team talked with teens.

The program is called Youth-Max. A wold-wide leadership event designed to give practical tools and ideas to navigate the path toward adulthood.

Today's sessions focused on bullying and self image difficulties.

Detective Jason Johnson says he sees a lot of promise in Missoula's youth. "It makes me proud. I know we have teens in our community that are leaders, absolutely, and so to have some of them come here today and learn some skills to prove their leadership, I think it's great."
