Muhlenberg Junior Leadership is a one-of-a-kind youth leadership program which will begin in October 2014.  MJL was developed and organized by a group of Leadership Muhlenberg graduates.  Muhlenberg Junior Leadership is now a component of Leadership Muhlenberg which is a part of the Greater Muhlneberg Chamber of Commerce.

The participants are high school hunior and seniors who apply for the program and attend seven sessions from October to May of their junior and senior year.  Eligible students are students enrolled in Muhlenberg County Public School District.

The emphasis is on leadership and programs each covering such topics as county government, social services and volunteerism, health care, technology, college survival, and road trips.  Students learn leadership and problem solving skills, meet leaders in their community, and have worthwhile discussions on community enhancement and making a difference.

Student applications are reviewed and approximately twenty (20) students are accepted each year.  The program ends with a Graduation celebration to which family and friends are invited.

We are asking for your support, as we strive to meet the Youth Leadership needs of MJL applicants.
