County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide continuing funding to the Center for Creative Leadership for the Golden LEAF Scholars Leadership Program. The program is expected to serve 205 current participants and up to 120 new Golden LEAF freshmen scholars. Students will participate in a leadership development conference in January with Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors participating in a closing conference in September 2014. Freshmen and Sophomores receive leadership coaching throughout the year. Participants also engage in a paid summer internship aligned with their career interests in a rural county that is economically distressed or tobacco dependent. Students receive $2,500 for participation in the leadership training and internship programs. The goals of the program include developing the leadership skills of the students and exposing them to professional opportunities in rural and economically distressed communities in the hopes that some will return to rural areas of the state and all will make positive contributions to those communities.
