Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass is now managing the Leadership Lexington Youth Program (LLYP)—a program for high school juniors enrolled in public, private, parochial, Montessori, and home schools. Founded in 2004 by Commerce Lexington Inc., the mission of LLYP is to prepare diverse individuals for leadership through education and hands-on interaction, exploring issues and resources pertaining to our community. The program will motivate students to think seriously about the role they would like to play and the difference they can make in the Lexington community.
Participants will interact with each other and community leaders, discuss issues, careers, business and post-secondary institutions. Day sessions focus on topics including the arts, government and public safety, higher education, health and human services, and more.
Partial scholarships may be available upon request for students accepted into the program.
Applications for the 2021-22 Leadership Lexington Youth Program were accepted March 1, 2021 through April 7, 2021.
