Furman’s Emerging Public Leaders and the new Emerging Diversity Leaders is a leadership and civic engagement program for high school students sponsored by the Richard W. Riley Institute of Government, Politics and Public Leadership. This week-long summer program (June 19 – 24, 2016) offers a series of experiences that enable students to develop into civic minded and engaged leaders in their communities. During the week, participants attend workshops at Furman that prepare them to plan and implement a service project addressing a specific need within their own communities. Students will then return to campus in the spring to present the results of their projects to their peers and a panel of judges. Additional project funds are awarded to the winner.
The program is free of charge to all current juniors who are selected this spring to participate.
