JAMESTOWN - James-town Business College (JBC) will soon launch the second offering of its leadership program designed specifically for promising high school seniors. While the program was open to Chautauqua County seniors in 2011, this year, the program will also be open to those seniors in Cattaraugus and Warren counties.
In its second year, the JBC Leadership Launch with Senator Catharine Young is slated to begin Thursday at the JBC campus.
As part of the program, nominated seniors will participate with Senator Young and JBC administration and faculty in a series of leadership activities. The five-week program, which will include a variety of interactive curriculum, will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about their own leadership capabilities.
JBC President, David Conklin, is excited for the second year of the program to begin. "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. We received an overwhelming number of nominations."
Schools participating in the 2012 session include: Allegany-Limestone, Cattaraugus-Little Valley, Cassadaga Valley, Chautau-qua Lake, Ellicottville, Forestville, Fredonia, Jamestown, Olean, Ripley, and Southwestern.
Jamestown Business College offers business-focused Associate and Bachelor degrees and certificate programs that include targeted professional development activities. For more information on registering for these programs, call 664-5100 or visit us online at www.JamestownBusinessCollege.edu.
