Leadership Niagara program aims at next generation

Leadership Niagara’s Leadership for the Youth of Niagara Communities (LYNC) program, now in its 15th year, is working with Niagara University to help high school students across Western New York change their concept of leadership and 21st century skills.

The eight-month program is available to students from 14 local high schools each year through a multi-year grant from the Irene E. Witkowski Agrawal Foundation.

Participants receive a highly structured and yet open-ended opportunity to collaborate, examine important institutions and programs across Western New York, analyze complex national and international social trends and social problems, and investigate avenues for personal success in society, business and schooling.

And, new this year, participants may extend their learning and participation in a course taught by Dr. Paul Vermette of Niagara University. The course focuses on the issues of diversity and globalization, democratic citizenship, leadership in personal and organizational frameworks and individual development. It carries three college credits.
