Youth Leadership Custer County begins its second year as one of the most valuable opportunities for our Sophomore and Junior students. Those selected, by application and interviews, have the chance not only to develop ways to become stronger, more effective leaders in their communities and Custer county, but to recognize the important role leadership plays in positive community and county involvement.
The program is described as follows:
“Effective leaders are essential in today’s society, and serve as models of achievement, accomplishment, and triumph. The intent of Practical Leadership is to offer area high school students the opportunity to learn and practice essential leadership skills in a structured setting, then encourages students to apply those skills in leadership opportunities in their communities”.
The mission of Youth Leadership Custer County is “to develop community leaders who will strengthen and transform the Custer County area by preparing participants to assume increasingly responsible leadership roles in their personal, professional, and academic lives”.
