JAMESTOWN -Jamestown Business College (JBC) is planning the second offering of its leadership program designed specifically for promising high school seniors.
The program was open to Chautauqua County seniors last year; this year the program will also be open to those seniors in Cattaraugus and Warren counties.
The JBC Leadership Launch with Sen. Catharine Young is slated to begin in October 2012.
Leadership Launch Program participants are shown with Senator Catharine Young and Jamestown Business College President David Conklin.
As part of the program, nominated seniors will participate with Sen. Young and JBC administration and faculty in a series of leadership activities.
The five-week program, which is an interactive curriculum, will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about their own leadership capabilities.
JBC President David Conklin is excited about the second year of the program.
"We received a great response to the program last year," he said. "And we are extremely excited to offer this program to even more students in our region."
Sen. Young said of the program, "Building and acquiring leadership skills are essential to a person's success in life.
"I am thrilled to be partnering with JBC that has developed a program designed to tap into the exceptional leadership and entrepreneurial qualities in our students that, too often, go unnoticed, unchallenged and untrained.
"This is an exciting and rare opportunity that will give these students the tools and skills allowing them to make an immediate impact in their schools and community."
Jamestown Business College offers business-focused Associate and Bachelor degrees and certificate programs that include targeted professional development activities.
