APPLICATION period closed
Our Signature, Diversity on Board, and Junior Leadership Akron programs are underway! Applications will open again for Signature and Diversity on Board at the beginning of March 2021. Students currently in the tenth grade who have an interest in Junior Leadership Akron should discuss this with their school counselors as soon as possible. We will work with school counselors at every high school in Summit County early in 2021 to begin shaping the 2021-2022 Junior Leadership Akron class!
Our NEXT program was delayed from Fall 2020 due to the pandemic. We currently plan to begin NEXT Class 9 in April 2021.
You can find more information about all of our programs below.
