13 Aug Accepting Applications for Junior Leadership class of 2019-2020
Application deadline September 23rd
The Wayne County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for 2019-2020 Junior Leadership Program. Junior Leadership boasts 386 graduates over since its inception 21 years ago.
This program was a vision of the Leadership Wayne Class of 1998-1999. It began with the goal of exposing high school juniors to the many job opportunities in Wayne County and has evolved over the years to include 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. The application deadline is September 23rd. Applications are available at all high schools in the county and the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce. For more information, call Janet Brock at (919) 734-2241.
