Some people are born leaders while others are developed- the #LEAD Program serves both. We are dedicated to the growth of Tulare County's next generation of leaders and believe the work we do makes a difference.
LEADING, EDUCATING, ADVOCATING AND DEDICATION (LEAD)
The #LEAD Program is designed to prepare future Tulare County leaders by giving them the opportunity to engage with local professionals, participate in service learning community projects and visit college campuses. #LEAD participants also have the opportunity to learn communication skills, conflict resolution, strategic planning and much more! The hope of the #LEAD Program is for students to leave the program with a clear set of educational and career goals.
PERKS OF BECOMING A #LEADER
Upon successful completion of the #LEAD program, students may be eligible for:
- Access to Mentors - Engage with local business owners, elected officials and college professors
- Employment - Opportunity to be recommended for an internship or employment with partner agencies
- College Campus Visits - Fresno State and a University of California campus (TBD)
- Team Building - Socialize with and support other young people in program
The #LEAD Program is provided by a partnership between the Tulare County Board of Supervisors, the Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency and CSET. #LEAD is open to high school juniors and seniors in the following school districts: Visalia, Tulare and Porterville.
