Thank you for your interest in Youth Leadership! Our mission is to identify and develop a cadre of young leaders for the purpose of assuming responsible community leadership roles necessary for impacting the future of Hopkinsville and Christian County.
Applications must be received by Monday, March 28, 2022 to be eligible for consideration. Applicants will be notified by April 29, 2022.
Since the number of participants in the program is limited and the number of applications received far exceeds the number of selected participants, applicants who are not selected are encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
Youth Leadership Hopkinsville-Christian County requires that participants commit to attendance at the overnight opening retreat and be present for all sessions (8 sessions & graduation). One parent must be in attendance at the parent meeting. At the mandatory parent meeting (TBA), a fee of $75.00 must be paid to Youth Leadership Hopkinsville – Christian County. If you are unable to make a full commitment to the program, it is not in your best interest to apply. If you miss more than eight (8) hours during the year, you will not be eligible to graduate. Institutional leave will be granted for participants upon advanced approval. Each participant will be assigned to a project group which requires at least one hour a month of community service. These monthly community service hours are mandatory!
