Youth Leadership Columbus
Youth Leadership Columbus is an interactive high school leadership development program created to recognize, educate, and empower future leaders who are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Columbus area.
This program — a hybrid of existing leadership programs coupled with the unique needs of Columbus in mind — was created by this year’s current Leadership Columbus class. This class of area leaders recognized that there was a need to create a mirror program for youth leaders in our community. They are now seeking applicants.
Participants will be provided with tours, roundtable discussions and speakers that can inspire and train the next generation of leaders in Columbus.
*This program is for sophomore students who will be a Junior in High School during the 2022-2023 school year.
Cost of program: There is no fee for YLC participants.
Selection criteria: The purpose of the YLC selection process is to choose a class of individuals who represent the Columbus area. Members of the Class will have the opportunities to become educated on various issues, exchange ideas and enhance their leadership skills.
Scholarship: Students participating in YLC will be eligible for a $300 college scholarship at the conclusion of the program. Scholarships will be presented at the Graduation ceremony and provided to the student to use at Central Community College during their senior year of high school.
