Student Leadership Johns Creek is a program for emerging leaders in their sophomore and junior years. Students apply beginning December 1st of their Freshman or Sophomore years for the two year program. Applicants are accepted from Centennial, Chattahoochee, Johns Creek and Northview High schools. The program is run by an advisory council under the board directorship of Leadership Johns Creek, a 501c3 non‐profit in collaboration with Fulton County Schools.

In year one of this two year leadership program, leadership skills will be developed through a series of structured learning experiences and then utilized in mentoring a group of local elementary or middle school students and community outreach. In the second year, students will have a more individualized focus, implementing the skills learned in year one to find leadership opportunities after high school and college.

A class of approximately 40-45 young adults will be selected from area Johns Creek high schools and will be introduced to a core curriculum of leadership skills including goal setting, project management, team building and communication skills.

What Participants and Parents Should Expect

• Interactive and experiential learning including skills practice and team work
• Safe environments in which to learn about and discuss important issues
• Increased confidence and self esteem
• Improved critical thinking and problem‐solving abilities
• Opportunities for real‐life applications of learned skills
• Opportunities to explore local, county and state governments


Who Should Apply?

Students who are currently freshmen or sophomores and who have demonstrated emerging leadership qualities in school, places of worship or in community service activities should apply. Students will submit an application beginning December 1st, (deadline is January 29, 2017) and a selection committee will approve candidates in March for the 2 year program year beginning August of that year.

Students accepted into Student Leadership Johns Creek are required to attend all program days. In addition, all participants are required to participate in a group service project. This project will require time to meet with team members outside of school hours. Careful consideration should be given to determine if the student can meet the time commitment.
