Applications for the Youth Leadership Columbia County Class of 2025 are available now!

Tuition: $375

Due date: April 5, 2025

Youth Leadership Columbia County is a program designed to educate through experience and motivate young leaders and enable them to take an active role in their community. This will result in strong leaders who have hope for the future and the tools to influence a positive and progressive community.

Participants must be rising sophomores or juniors in Columbia County high schools or residents of Columbia County. They are selected after consideration of their recognized and potential leadership and the merit of their application. The Selection Committee strives to achieve a geographical, racial and socio-economic balance in their selections.

Join us Thursday, March 7, 2024, from 4 – 7 p.m. for the annual Columbia County Career and College Expo at the Columbia County Exhibition Center. The event is FREE to attend, but you must Pre-Register (registration is linked below). Registration enters students into a chance to win one of two $500 scholarships.
The purpose of the event is to expose parents and students to career opportunities for the future. The initiative will align the educational, technical, and trade sectors with the businesses showing parents and students the pathways to obtain a future quality career. Each company will list the main careers needed for the future and include education, skills, or certificates needed to be employed by their company. The company will also list the benefits and salary ranges expected to be paid for each type of position. The goal is to show a true path from high school to a future career, whether that includes a four-year university, a technical college or trade school, or directly going into the workforce - it’s a road to a future career. More than 40 colleges and universities are expected to attend along with nearly 30 local businesses and industry representatives. You won't want to miss this!
