Junior Leadership Merced, a program of the Greater Merced Chamber of Commerce, said it's looking for a few good high school students.
Now entering its seventh year, the program has seen over 120 Merced-area high school students graduate with great foundational experience in practical leadership.
All 11th- and 12th-grade students residing or attending school in Merced County are eligible to apply for the program, which features several one-day sessions throughout the year, as well as a three-day retreat. Upon completion of the program, the students will have earned 1 unit of credit at Merced College through Jonae Pistoresi’s national award-winning “Thrive and Survive” program. Students participate in a number of activities that focus on business, education, government, and community involvement in Merced County.
The application is available on the chamber’s website at www.merced-chamber.com, as well as any of the career centers located at Merced Union High School District campuses.
Applications are to be turned in to either the chamber’s office or an MUHSD career center/student body office by Friday, Sept. at 5 p.m.
