Junior Leadership Durham is a community-wide program designed to shape the future of high school students by developing leadership skills and promoting teamwork through fostering self-confidence and personal growth.

Through active participation, students will interact with business, community and government leaders to gain an in-depth knowledge of Durham and will explore ways to contribute to their community.

Class No. 12 will begin in September 2014 with approximately 25 selected students. There is no charge to the students but as a nonprofit organization, Junior Leadership Durham, Inc. appreciates donations from individuals and community businesses.

Ninth grade students attending Durham public, private, charter, or home schools are encouraged to submit an application.

Student applications are due March 24 and can be downloaded from the Junior Leadership Durham website at juniorleadershipdurham.org
