Applications being accepted for leadership program

The Leadership Collier Foundation™, an affiliate of The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, is now accepting applications for the Class of 2019 Youth Leadership Collier™ program.

The mission of Youth Leadership Collier is to develop ethical leaders committed to active community involvement. The program empowers students to become effective leaders through hands on experiences and field work with key organizations, while encouraging returning or staying in Collier County to begin careers and community leadership.

Youth Leadership Collier is a week-long intensive program that begins with a weekend of team-building activities. Participants interact in daily sessions designed to give them first-hand experience in various aspects of the community. Topics include local government, healthcare, law enforcement, business, agriculture, media, human services, environment, and the arts.

The 2019 program will take place from June 1 through June 7, 2019.

Tuition is $500. The deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2019.
