Junior Leadership Odessa needs sponsors

December 19, 2018

Junior Leadership Odessa, a 40-year old program of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce for junior-year students from Falcon Early College High School at Odessa College, New Tech Odessa, OCTECHS, Odessa High School and Permian High School, needs sponsors.

Participants attend sessions once a week through the months of January and February. Each student needs $200 to sponsor them. Classes are limited to 40 students. Each session will also have a food sponsor who will provide dinner to the group.

Junior Leadership Odessa is sponsored by the Odessa Chamber of Commerce and is planned, coordinated and executed by the present Leadership Odessa class. The program is designed to expose high school juniors to Odessa’s resources and the many opportunities available in the community.

The session starts in January with an annual retreat followed by four additional sessions learning about subjects such as healthcare, media and education, arts and culture, and government and public safety.

Those interested in sponsoring a student for $200 can contact Lynn Van Amburgh at 432-333-7862, or email lynnva@odessachamber.com.
