YLBC Goals:

Youth Leadership Bartholomew County provides rising seniors opportunities to showcase their leadership skills through high school experiences in the areas of academics, activities, community service and work.  Additionally, they will be exposed to activities to support them in the college application process or post-high school career journey. Each youth leader will create a usable resume, write an essay similar to a scholarship essay, participate in a professional interview and attend a leadership workshop.  It is the intent of the Youth Leadership Bartholomew County program to recognize and provide our youth with meaningful opportunities along their journey to become future leaders in the communities in which they live.

YLBC Vision:

YLBC seeks to empower young leaders by equipping them to positively impact the communities in which they live.

YLBC Mission:

YLBC recognizes it’s outstanding high school career and college bound students’ leadership, achievement and community service, and provides them with experiences and training to become successful leaders.
