The basis for this initiative is to serve well behaved youth who have demonstrated leadership qualities in either a traditional or less traditional sense, and may not otherwise have an opportunity to participate in this type of program. In order to participate, my child will miss seven school days over the course of the school year and any work missed while taking part in this program must be made up. This is a participatory, interactive program for students who enjoy that type of setting. Youth are expected to be ACTIVE participants, taking part in conversations, interactive games etc.

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.

EXAMPLES:

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

You may attach up to one (1) sheet of additional information.
