First we salute Gabrielle Banks for her selection by the Congressional Young Leadership Conference(CYLC) to attend the Junior National Leadership Conference in Washington, DC this October. Gabrielle lives in Chatham and is a 7th grader at Beasley Academy.

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC) offers mature, high-achieving middle school students the opportunity to learn about leadership by studying the leaders of the past and by focusing on social advocacy to make a positive impact in their homes and communities. Through an examination of both different historical time periods and characteristics of leadership, students will gain a better understanding of what it takes to become an effective leader.

Each session of JrNYLC is designed to educate, inspire, and motivate students by giving them the confidence and leadership skills that will take them through high school and beyond. Attending students receive personal guidance and direction from dedicated and experienced faculty advisors and are also provided with materials designed to foster self-directed experiential learning.

Tuition for Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC) is $1,890 plus transportation cost for the fall 2010 and spring 2011 sessions. Gabrielle and her family are asking the community to assist with the cost so she can attend.
