Youth Leadership Bartow
Youth Leadership Bartow fosters mutual understanding, respect, and civic engagement among local high school students and the community at large. The program is designed to encourage students to participate as leaders in their schools and to continue to promote and enhance the quality of life for themselves and their communities as they further their education and begin their careers. The Chamber believes that this investment in our youth will instill in them the passion and commitment needed to further their community as the next generation of leaders.
YLB is a 9-month program that begins with a one (1) day retreat in August in conjunction with the Adult Leadership Program and continues one (1) full day each month, concluding with a joint graduation ceremony in May of the following year.
All Bartow schools participate closely in the program from the selection of the students to allowing them to participate in the program throughout the year. The program is for sophomores and juniors in High School and is open for applications beginning in May of each year.
For more information, please contact the Community Development Director.
