Youth participation is an essential aspect in the continuation of community growth and community impact. Research has demonstrated youth can make meaningful contributions to society fostering change in schools, social programs, businesses, and communities.
The Next Leadership Program works with area high school students to develop the next generation of social entrepreneurs and community advocates. Program participants identify issues affecting their community and work to resolve them through entrepreneurship, legislation or community partnerships. Participants engage in workshops, group projects and interactions with community leaders.
We are accepting applications for Summer 2023! Eligible students must be in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade.
The program meets on Monday, July 10 and 17 from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m. at the Edge Teen Center East location.
