SLYCE: New Leadership Program for Young Adults

While leadership is a hot topic among adults ascending into management positions, programs are being established to build the next generation of leaders, from our plethora of talented and aspiring young adults.

One such program, in Northwest Indiana, is called South Shore Leadership Youth for Community Engagement (SLYCE). According to Leadership Northwest Indiana:

The purpose of the new SLYCE program is to prepare high achieving high school students to become future leaders who are committed, empowered and involved in their communities.

The SLYCE program is an outgrowth of Leadership Northwest Indiana which was founded in 1982 and has witnessed nearly 1,000 participants complete the dynamic LNI program. This expertise and experience will be used to prepare young leaders for a lifetime of leadership in Northwest Indiana.

I am confident that we will have one of the 42 high school 9th-11th graders write for our blog about leadership, networking and communication skills that can apply, not only to young adults looking to enter the leadership ranks for tomorrow, but adults ascending into management positions.

Check back soon and keep us bookmarked for more about leadership, networking and communication skills that will help you become a more efficient leader.
