UT Non-Credit Programs is offering a Junior Leadership Institute Program called LEADS for youth in the summer.
What is LEADS? The acronym is a program that supports leadership, education, arts and culture, discovery, and service.
LEADS Mission: To get an early start in becoming an active leader of our community through history, community, education, innovation, and the arts. Learn value in community service and involvement as we explore and connect with our community.
Each day we’ll explore a specific theme within LEADS, and you’ll travel in Knoxville and the surrounding communities to learn the various aspects of leadership. Each morning we’ll start off with breakfast and a speaker from the community to share something about that day’s theme. Then we’ll set off to historic sites, tour local businesses, visit area museums, meet community leaders, and even spend time at an area non-profit and participate in a service project. Lunch will be provided each day.
UT Non-Credit is partnering with local school systems to provide 10 scholarships to deserving students who meet certain criteria in order to attend our Junior Leadership Institute. The students will be recommended by local teachers and guidance counselors.
We’ll end our week with a LEADS graduation and reception with parents.
