LEAD Hampton Roads Seeks Applicants for Youth Leadership Program

LEAD Hampton Roads is pleased to announce eXcel 2012, a youth leadership development and community education program for rising high school seniors.  eXcel was created as a response to this significant loss of our region’s gifted young professionals. Modeled after LEAD Hampton Roads, the region’s oldest and well-known business leadership program of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, eXcel is designed to identify, educate and prepare future leaders by providing development tools, opportunities and experiences of the inner workings of our rich and diverse region. eXcel places students in a network of regional youth and adult leaders which will form a strong foundation for their future success in college and the working world. Emphasis is placed on strengthening the ties of our youth to Hampton Roads.  

eXcel 2012 will be held July 16-20, from 9:00am-5:00pm, at locations across Hampton Roads.  eXcel is open to all qualified rising high school seniors. Participants are selected through an application process. The cost is $275 per person (to include program materials, transportation and admission to various venues, as well as lunches and snacks). Scholarships and payment plans are available. Contact Margaret Wilcox at 664-2516 or mwilcox@hrccva.com for an application or additional information.

LEAD Hampton Roads is the leadership program of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.
