Junior Leadership Orange Recommendation Form
To be completed by a non-relative adult who can speak to applicant’s strengths (in-school and/or out-of-school) and reasons for recommending youth for this leadership program.
Junior Leadership Orange is a program for eight grade students that strives to identify emerging young leaders, providing them with knowledge and skills that foster vision that they will ultimately utilize to strengthen their local communities. This is a h ighly selective process with limited slots from each Orange County school district. Selected youth will be active participants, taking part in conversations, interactive games, etc. It is the goal of this program to be made up of a group of diverse youth leaders from both non- traditional and traditional settings.
Non-traditional leadership: applicant might volunteer as an individual rather than with a formal group for charity events (i.e. breast cancer walk), in a band (outside of school), helps a local animals shelter, etc.
Traditional leadership: applicant might participate in school groups, sports, scouts, faith based groups, etc.
What unique skills and abilities does this candidate possess that makes them a good example of a Non-traditional or Traditional Leader (as described above). - Feel free to elaborate
