The Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce they are accepting applications for the Teen Leadership Cherokee Class of 2023 through Sunday, December 11, 2022.  Students must be in 10th grade to apply. The mission of Teen Leadership Cherokee, which graduated its first class in 2001, is for participants to L.E.A.D. (lead, educate, aspire, and drive) so that they may confidently become our community’s next generation of leaders. Participants will develop a sense of community while discovering the impact of teamwork upon their peers, their schools, and Cherokee County.

The young men and women selected to participate in Teen Leadership Cherokee must attend school and/or live in Cherokee County, demonstrate outstanding qualities as existing or potential leaders, and possess the desire to effect change in their community. Participants’ academic achievements and responsibilities – working after school, active participation in school functions or membership in other organizations – will be reviewed during the selection process. The class is limited to 20 participants.

The application may be found at www.CherokeeChamber.com/programs-events/programs/teen-leadership-cherokee. To obtain additional information, please contact Meagan Nicholson at the Cherokee County Chamber
