Youth Leadership Program is Accepting Applications

OSWEGO -- Leadership Oswego County Youth (LOCY) is accepting applications for its eighth year of youth leadership training experience. The training will take place during the 2006-2007 school year and requires permission from the student’s school to be excused from classes one day a month.

The program is open to all high school students in Oswego County. Preference is given to those entering their freshman and sophomore year that have shown leadership potential and a desire to learn.

“Leadership Oswego County Youth teaches young people skills that will enable them to make a difference in their school and community,” said Jim Farfaglia, senior youth services specialist for the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau. “The program provides an opportunity for youth to learn about future leadership opportunities such as serving on the Youth Advisory Council and other advisory boards, becoming an officer in a school club, being a team leader in sports and becoming involved in community volunteer groups.”

Interested students should contact the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau office at 349-3451 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 3451, or e-mail jim@oswegocounty.com for an application.

The deadline to apply is May 12. Students who are chosen will be notified the first week of June; other students will be kept on a waiting list.

LOCY is sponsored by Leadership Oswego County, Oswego State University and the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau.
