Forty high school juniors in the Ashland Alliances Youth Leadership Program visited ACTC March 13 for an Education Day Program.
The program on Where Do We Go from Here and How Do We Get There? explored opportunities available within the education system for developing leadership skills. Presentations included financing a college education, choosing a career and getting through the freshman year successfully.
The students from seven high schools in Boyd and Greenup County were selected for the Youth Leadership Program through an application and essay process. They participate in monthly sessions on topics such as government, arts amp; culture, economic development, volunteerism and education.
Leadership Program students learn about community issues, economic developing, government, arts amp; culture, encourage mutual respect, instill in them the responsibility for their own lives and the lives of others, and developing leadership skills.
