Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 Junior Leadership Columbia program. All current Columbia sophomores are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, March 24. A letter and application document was mailed out directly to each sophomore, but I wanted to make sure the Guidance office was aware of this and has an electronic copy.
Junior Leadership Columbia is an innovative community program designed by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce for high school juniors. The 9-month program motivates emerging leaders and develops the potential for community leadership by acquainting participants with the opportunities, realities and challenges of the Columbia community. The program begins in August 2017 and runs through April 2018. It includes 8 Monday evening sessions from 5- 7:30, on Saturday service project, one morning at the March Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Membership Breakfast and Business Showcase, and one full day field-trip to the State Capitol.
The only direct cost for a student to participate in the program is a non-refundable $25 application fee.
More information and the application are available on the Columbia Chamber of Commerce's website https://columbiamochamber.com/news/2017-2018-junior-leadership-columbia-applications-now-available-for-current-sophomores/
University of Missouri School of Business are hosting the annual Trulaske Business Academy this year on July 23-29th!
The Trulaske Business Academy was established in 2008 to serve as a pre-college summer program for minority students interested in business. The goal of this week-long residential program is to introduce students to the various disciplines and career opportunities within the business world, while also experiencing life on a college campus.
Rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade minority students with at least a 3.0 GPA are eligible to apply for the program. Applications are available now and students will be notified of their admission in May. Students will need to complete an essay and submit an official high school transcript as part of their application. All students selected to participate in the Trulaske Business Academy are awarded a scholarship to cover the cost of the general cost of the program (i.e. meals, lodging, activities).
Participants of the Trulaske Business Academy will spend a majority of their day in classroom activities facilitated by faculty, staff, and corporate representatives. Evenings are spent participating in social activities with Academy Coordinators and Counselors exploring the Mizzou campus and Columbia area. At times, the Business Academy will join up with other summer camps for high school students for social events.
We generally have around 30-35 students, so please ensure that the application is filled out thoroughly. Applications are due Friday, April 7th by 5:00pm.
