Greater Hall Chamber Announces New Youth Leadership Class

Greater Hall Chamber Announces New Youth Leadership Class
Gainesville, GA – 04/14/07: The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Leadership Hall County program has been training area leaders for over 20 years. Due to its success, the Chamber initiated Youth Leadership Hall (YLH) in fall 2005. The program is designed for high school juniors and seniors and enables students to develop leadership skills while increasing awareness of the community. The program consists of two sessions, fall and spring, and seeks to provide an investment in the community’s future leadership by fostering interest in the community and inspiring students to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Sessions focus on leadership skills, successful team work, community awareness, diversity, and business and social etiquette. Participants have an expressed interest in understanding and serving the community and demonstrate leadership ability. Students must have a satisfactory academic standing and be nominated by a teacher, coach, or extra curricular activity director.
