Spring 2016 Youth Leadership Applications

BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. – The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that applications are now available for the Spring 2016 Youth Leadership Program.
The Youth Leadership Program is an intensive, elite seven month program designed to provide Eastern Shore high school students with the opportunity to gain a greater knowledge about their community, develop strong leadership skills and gain more self and social awareness in order to make a positive difference in the quality of community life. Christina Hellmich, Director of Workforce Development for the Chamber says "By developing young leaders, we will build vital communities that value fairness, diversity and integrity.”

The group meets monthly and then works in teams to develop small group projects on pertinent community issues. Activities include an opening retreat, five topical seminar days, community service activities, closing retreat and graduation ceremony. The topical seminars cover the history and geography of Baldwin County, business smarts, health and human services, law and government, and the environment.

The Youth Leadership Program is open to students from Fairhope High School, Daphne High School, Spanish Fort High School, Bayside Academy, and home school students. The program runs from August to February.
