Leadership Fort Stockton is now accepting applications for both the Youth and Adult classes of 2021-2022.
The Youth Leadership program provides community learning and volunteer experience to high school seniors, with scholarship opportunities upon successful completion of the class. All students who will be a senior during the 2021-2022 school year are eligible to apply. Click here for the application
The Leadership program provides both professional and personal growth opportunities through education and experience for adults (over age 18) in the community. We encourage businesses to enroll managers and team leaders in the program – participants gain useful leadership skills and develop community connections that benefit not only themselves but their employers. The 2021-2022 class begins with a retreat on September 16-19, 2021, and runs through May 2022 with monthly education days. Click here for the application
