Exciting Opportunity for current SOPHOMORES:

The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees offers an exciting and dynamic two-year leadership development program for high school students, called Leadership 101/102. Sophomore students interested in leadership development during their junior and senior years are invited to apply to participate in the district’s 2019-2020 Leadership 101 program. Three students per high school are selected through a competitive application process. During their junior year, the program explores leadership skills through topics such as youth advocacy, service and volunteerism, local government in action, business, and health care through monthly seminars and site visits. During their senior year, the entire cohort moves together and participates in Leadership 102, by working with non-profit agencies in the community. It is Fort Bend ISD’s goal to develop leadership at all levels and to positively impact the climate and culture of our schools and community through the leadership of our students and staff.

The Leadership 101 application is live and can be found at https://secure.fortbendisd.com/StudentLeadership

Applications are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 15, 2019.
