Accepting Applications for Junior Leadership class of 2018-2019

Application deadline for Junior Leadership class of 2018-2019 has been extended to October 4, 2018

It’s not too late to apply for the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce 2018-19 Junior Leadership program!  Due to Hurricane Florence, the deadline for applications has been extended to Thursday, October 4, 2018.

Apply today for an opportunity to participate in a program that will expose high school juniors to the many job opportunities in Wayne County, team building and leadership skills exercises.  This is one of the many programs funded by dollars raised during our annual Dancing Stars of Wayne County fundraiser.

Participants will begin the program with a one-day orientation and then spend six days throughout the year focusing on a variety of topics.  Participants will have an opportunity to visit places involving local government, industry, healthcare, history, education, military, arts, leisure, community service and agri-business.   The students will learn more about our multi-faceted county and about career opportunities they may not have considered and gain a firsthand look into Wayne County.

Junior Leadership Wayne County is open to all high school juniors who attend public, private, home school, or parochial schools located in Wayne County.   Applicants must have a solid “B” or above average and demonstrate leadership in school and/or community activities.

Again, the application deadline has been extended to Thursday, October 4th.  Applications are available at all high schools in the county and the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce or by clicking here. For more information, call Janet Brock at (919) 734-2241.
