Tomorrow's Leaders Today

Tomorrow's Leaders Today


Leadership Lackawanna’s seven-month Tomorrow’s Leaders Today program develops the leadership, interpersonal and managerial skills of high school juniors and provides real-world experiences in the areas of philanthropy, non-profit organizations and community service.  In addition to the skills learned and topics explored, the opportunities and challenges of northeastern Pennsylvania are discussed as participants network with community leaders and other high school students.  Sessions are held one full weekday each month.

Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Program accepts applications from sophomores who attend high school in Lackawanna County or in the Lackawanna Trail and Western Wayne school districts.

Each year, a class of approximately 34 students, representing various geographic areas and schools, will be selected to participate. The program runs from October through April. Sessions are held one full weekday each month from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. A graduation ceremony is held in the Spring.

Ultimately, upon completion of the monthly sessions, participants will have the necessary skills to become concerned and committed citizens who participate and invest in our community. High school students of today are the community and business leaders of tomorrow. Tomorrow's Leaders Today turns aspiring teens into future adult leaders.
