Youth Leadership Washington County

Youth Leadership Washington County (YLWC) is designed for 11th and 12th grade students who want to learn to be leaders or learn to be more effective leaders. You don’t have to be the president of your class or a team captain or ranked high in your class. If you think you have leadership potential, or you have a desire to learn more about leadership and opportunities in your county then Youth Leadership Washington County is for you.

The purpose of YLWC is to train students in leadership techniques and community awareness so that they may become familiar with current issues, community resources, opportunities and other factors influencing Washington County’s future. The students work on three areas: self-development, self-awareness and leadership — while also meeting local, state, and national individuals who impact the future of Washington in various areas of education, economic development, government, tourism etc.
