Leadership Allegany! Rising
The Allegany County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a new opportunity for Allegany County high school juniors, Leadership Allegany! Rising. The program, modeled after the successful Leadership Allegany! program now in its 21st year, is accepting nominations from school counselors from each high school in Allegany County for the inaugural class. The program is dedicated to providing positive change by creating a network of future leaders committed to impacting their community. The Allegany County Chamber of Commerce believes today, more than ever, that our future is tied to strong leadership. The more informed and involved our youth become the stronger the community.
In a forum of open discussion and interaction, class members will gain the knowledge and motivation to effect positive change within the region. Educational Topic Days designed for class participation and dialogue will cover topics including Healthcare/ Social Services, Government, Economic Development/ Business/ Career, and Higher Education. All program activities will be led by industry leaders and will occur within the scheduled school day.
This seven-month program begins with an orientation in September and concludes with graduation ceremonies in March 2018. High school juniors interested in participating should contact their school counselor and must complete an application. The application deadline is September 8, 2017. Up to four students from each high school in Allegany County will be accepted. There is no cost to participate.
