The Mission of Lowndes Young Leaders is to identify future leaders of Columbus and Lowndes County and provide personal, cultural, social, and leadership development that will enhance their ability to serve as effective leaders.
This is a ten-month leadership program for high school sophomores that live in and attend high school or are homeschooled in Lowndes County. The program is designed to develop an energetic and diverse group of informed and qualified young leaders who will become our business and community leaders of tomorrow.
The program allows students to explore various aspects of business and economic development, law and criminal justice, health care, quality of life, and government.
Activities are designed to develop skills in teamwork and collaboration, problem-solving, communication, organization and planning, ethics, networking, personal development, and leadership skills.
Participants gain an increased awareness of how leadership affects all aspects of life.
