    What Is Youth Leadership?

    The Chamber Foundation offers a two-year leadership, personal, and workforce development program for 11th and 12th grade students with the goal of developing young leaders and showcasing the countless gems in Superior-Douglas County.  This Program has, for the past fifteen years, attracted over 500 students from all the high schools in Douglas County; Superior, Northwestern, Solon Springs, and Maranatha Academy.  WITC-Superior is also a strong supporter of the Chamber Foundation Youth Leadership Program and gives the students the opportunity to earn a college credit upon completion of the program.
