HIGH SCHOOL
LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE

CULTIVATING YOUTH LEADERSHIP FOR THE EVERGLADES

WHAT IS THE HIGH SCHOOL
LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE?

The High School Leadership Committee is a community action project-driven leadership program. The Everglades Foundation accepts up to 25 high school students annually from around the state to serve on the High School Leadership Committee.  Each year a project theme and focus will be selected, and the committee members will work collaboratively to plan and implement the project in their local communities. Each project will enable these students to leverage their youth voices and those of their peers to promote Everglades restoration and protection.
