Emerging Leaders

Now accepting applications for the Leadership Prince George’s Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)!

OUR VISION:

Our mission is to develop the leadership capacity of young people in Prince George’s County through knowledge-building, civic engagement, and action-based opportunities to promote positive change within the communities in which they live.

OUR GOAL:

The primary goal for the Emerging Leaders Program for 2016-2017 is to develop young leaders through knowledge building activities, capacity development, and involvement with action-based opportunities in the community.

THE PROGRAM

The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed to help develop 11th and 12th grade students into leaders and Community Trustees. During the program year, participants receive extensive leadership training and have access to valuable networking opportunities with both public and private stakeholders. In addition, participants discuss current issues and participate in activities designed to enhance their understanding of Prince George’s County and the Region. The program culminates with Emerging Leaders attending and being recognized at the Annual Leadership Prince George’s Graduation and Leadership Recognition Dinner. Graduation from the ELP Program requires attendance and participation in all scheduled workshops and activities during the 2016-2017 program year.
