Leadership Lackawanna, The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce’s leadership development affiliate, has announced the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Program Class of 2015-2016.
Tomorrow’s Leaders Today is a seven-month-long teen program designed to develop the leadership, interpersonal and managerial skills of high school juniors while providing real-world experience in the areas of philanthropy, non-profit organizations and community service.
In addition to the skills learned and topics explored, the opportunities and challenges of northeastern Pennsylvania are discussed as participants network with community leaders and other high school students. Sessions are held one full weekday each month.
The program accepts applications from students who attend high school in Lackawanna County, as well as students from both the Lackawanna Trail and Western Wayne school districts. Tomorrow’s Leaders Today began in 1997 under Chamber affiliate Skills in Scranton and merged with Leadership Lackawanna in 2011.
