The Leadership Lake County Junior program is designed as a nine month program for high school students to acquire leadership skills and increase civic engagement. The program focuses on 21st Century skill development including collaboration, critical thinking, communication, creativity, life and career skills, and information technology skills.
Monthly program days provide students with a behind the scenes look at lake County through on-site visits, guest speakers, and experiential learning activities. Students are introduced to various sectors of the county including government, health and human services,business, and recreation. A class project fosters development of leadership skills and service learning through a community service project requiring research, action and reflection.
Many thanks to Mary Jane Sanders of the Lubrizol Corporation for sponsoring the program fee for Pablo and Andres to participate in Leadership Lake County.
