The kick off of our 2014 Youth Leadership Union program is just around the corner. The Blairsville-Union County Chamber is proud to present this incredible series in partnership with our sponsor, Community & Southern Bank.
Youth Leadership Union was established to develop the knowledge and skills of the participants to become our leaders of tomorrow. During the 9-week program, participants will better understand the foundations of leadership, develop a sense of community by touring many local government offices and business operations, and gain valuable lifelong skills such as interviewing and wardrobe, personality styles, basics of entrepreneurship, and public speaking. Most sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings at the Union County Community Center beginning September 23, and a meal will be provided.
Selection into the program will be based on a written application and interview process and will be limited to 20 students. Applicants must be in the 10th or 11th grade and attend school in Union County or live in Union County. They must demonstrate outstanding character and desire to make an impact in their community through involvement in business organizations, civic club, churches, and/or other extracurricular activities. We seek participates who are honest, have integrity, dependability and a concern for others. If selected, participation is expected by attending all sessions.
Applications and a complete class schedule can be obtained from the Chamber of Commerce, Community & Southern Bank or the high school counselors. Many students will receive an application in the mail to their home address.
