Lydia’s Leaders is a pilot program designed to bring together community leaders and young adult emerging leaders who are currently enrolled at an Athens Area Campus.

Young adults are selected based on an individual commitment to leadership development and a desire to cultivate the full potential of oneself and others. Priority will be given to those who have experienced foster care or homelessness.

Lydia's Leaders is a series of four monthly sessions designed to connect students with current academic and community professionals. Subject areas include communication and networking, financial literacy, successful interviewing practices and strength finding.

In addition, Leaders and Emerging Leaders in the program will have the opportunity to meet outside of our corporate gatherings. The students accepted for this program will receive a Certificate of Leadership and be eligible to apply for the “Damien Godfrey Scholarship” upon completion.
