NY Penn Leadership
Sponsored by: The Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce and Valley Economic Development Association.

The NY-Penn Leadership Program is designed to prepare local residents, students, business and industry managers, and elected officials to function as well informed and active civic trustees. The program is centered on educating individuals so they help shape the future of the New York and Pennsylvania Region through leadership involvement and commitment both in the workplace and the community.

Potential candidates must complete an application form and provide two reference forms to be reviewed by the NY-PENN Leadership Committee. Approximately twenty-five individuals will be selected to participate in the program.

The NY-PENN Leadership Program begins with a mandatory full-day orientation session. The remainder of the program includes fourteen two and one-half hour sessions, a full day session and a commencement ceremony.

CHOICES is an interactive classroom seminar that gives middle and high school students a chance to see into the future and recognize the importance of the personal and academic decisions they make today. The program offers the following features:

Creative, highly participatory exercises facilitated by volunteer presenters from the business community, are utilized to help students learn how to take control of their lives by making wise decisions.

Students explore time and money management techniques.

Students are challenged to think about their future career options based on the level of education they decide to achieve, as well as, the impact their choices will have on others and the world around them.

Self-discipline is encouraged as the key to success in their future endeavors and at the end of the seminar they are given the "Key to Success" as a reminder of the control they have over their choices and their futures.
