The Leadership For Collins Program is currently accepting registration and will select 60 up-and-coming leaders for their September program.

LFC runs from September 2020 through May of 2021 and meets with introductory sessions from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month. Eventually the program will shift online with a heavy focus on implementing change, book club and one-on one conversations with community leaders, according to North Forty News.

I was the Vice President of student council in high school and President of the Public Relations Student Society of America in college which gave me many opportunities to rub elbows with decision makers in my community.

I see a lot of benefits to a program like this  and would totally jump at the opportunity if I was teen. However, it doesn't come cheap with tuition at $450. Although this does cover the cost of required materials for the program.

If you know a bright young person who would benefit from this please keep in mind that registration ends at 5 p.m. on Monday, September 21.
