Hancock Youth Leadership Now Accepting Applications for Class of 2020
(FINDLAY, OH, February 4, 2019) – Applications are now being accepted for the 2019-2020 Hancock Youth Leadership (HYL) program. Affiliated with the Findlay•Hancock County Chamber of Commerce, HYL is an investment in the future of Findlay and Hancock County. Its purpose is to enhance knowledge and develop leadership skills in a select group of high school students, motivating them to become positive role models, active and committed to their civic responsibilities.
Students attend monthly sessions, beginning with a leadership skills-building retreat in August. Session topics include agriculture, health and human services, arts and media, diversity, business and economic development, justice and law, and volunteerism.
“HYL is a fantastic program, giving our community’s high school students a backstage pass to the inner workings of Findlay and Hancock County,” said Heather Heilman, HYL board of director’s president. “Speaking on behalf of all of the adult volunteers who make HYL possible, we’re pleased to present this opportunity to a new class of students.”
HYL is open to Hancock County and Findlay City Schools students, including those who are homeschooled, beginning their junior year in fall 2019. Eligible students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applications are available at all high school guidance offices and online at FindlayHancockChamber.com/HYL. Completed applications must be returned to the principal or guidance counselor by Friday, March 15, 2019.
