Junior Leadership Southside

Logo - Junior Leadership Southside

Junior Leadership Southside is an intensive, one-week program that offers a holistic approach to leadership orientation and development through various sessions and presenters. Students focus on creating their own values, mission, and vision. They will identify important aspects of self, formulate new approaches to social issues, and inspire others to act around their shared visions. Graduates of the program will leave with the ambition and practical tools to effect positive change in our community.

Created as the class project of Leadership Southside XIV, Junior Leadership Southside provides leadership orientation and development to rising high school juniors and seniors in the Dan River Region.

This year, the CCECC is partnering with Middle Border Forward (MBF) to plan and implement the program.  MBF seeks to cultivate inclusive leadership, inspire community engagement and create equitable access to opportunities in our region. Their passion and expertise will create an even more meaningful experience for program participants.

The program dates for this year’s Junior Leadership Southside are June 11 – 16, 2017.

The deadline to apply is April 7, 2017.
