Thirty-two high school sophomore and junior students representing 21 York County schools kicked off
Thirty-two high school sophomore and junior students representing 21 York County schools kicked off the Future Leaders of York 2021 class this fall with a one-day retreat. The 2021 class will be the 32nd class to graduate through the FLY program. FLY is a nine-month, experiential leadership development program. The program helps students develop their leadership skills, such as building consensus to solve problems. It also introduces them to local nonprofits and community leaders and educates them about how our community functions. The students learn about the grant making process, and will award $5,000 in grants to area nonprofits, thanks to funding from York County Community Foundation and United Way of York County. The class develops the field of interest, selection criteria, and process for requesting proposals. Local nonprofits can apply in January, and the class will review and allocate funds based on their selection criteria.
