CONNECTING MANATEE COUNTY'S FUTURE LEADERS TO COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES!
JLM is a program for high-school juniors interested in developing their leadership skills by enhancing their knowledge of community resources, current issues and other factors influencing the direction of our county's future. A series of six themed sessions exposes students to business and government resources and provides an opportunity to meet community leaders to discuss current issues.
Get a firsthand look at business, government and the media from "behind the scenes," connect with community leaders and share your concerns and ideas, explore career and employment opportunities and add something different on your college application.
We're glad you asked!
