Application Information- due March 29

Note from the YCLE Program Coordinator

The Port Orange South Daytona Chamber of Commerce is hosting it's 3rd Annual Youth Civic Leadership Experience this summer.  The program has proven extremely successful and we are looking forward to engaging local high school students in civic leadership and community involvement again this June.  Some very talented and enthusiastic AHS students were a big part of the past years' success!

The goal is to have a cross section of motivated and engaged students that will represent our entire community.

The program flyer and application are attached.  I will drop off copies in the Guidance Office this afternoon as well.   Applications are due March 29th.

Thank you for your assistance in Growing Local Leaders.
