Student Leadership Johns Creek is a program for emerging leaders in their sophomore and junior years. Students apply in January 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 the completion of community service projects. In the second year, students will focus on implementing the skills learned during year one. The goal is for the students to become catalysts for change in their schools and communities.

A class of approximately 30 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. In addition, opportunities will be provided to explore local, county and state governments.

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

Who Should Apply?

Students who are currently freshmen or sophomores and who have demonstrated either solid or emerging leadership qualities in school, places of worship or in community service activities should apply. Students will submit an application, and a selection committee will approve candidates, in February 2014 for the 2 year program year beginning August 2014.

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.
