Bleaders is a leadership and empowerment retreat for teens and young adults ages 14-22 in the bleeding disorders community in Northern California. Bleaders can enjoy a safe environment to discuss with their peers the ways in which bleeding disorders affects their lives as teens and young adults. The driving force behind Bleaders is the understanding that the youth are our community’s future leaders. By taking the time now to educate our teens and inform them on issues that are happening within their community, we strive to help them develop into responsible, compassionate leaders who will be integral to the success of the future of our community.
