NKY Chamber announces 30th Regional Youth Leadership Class

FORT MITCHELL, Ky. ‚ÄĒ The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) is excited to announce the 50 high school juniors selected for the 2024 Regional Youth Leadership (RYL) class, representing nearly 40 schools in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. This class marks the 30th year of the NKY Chamber‚Äôs signature program.

During the eight-month program, students will use the community as a classroom to collaborate with local business and civic leaders to enhance their educational experiences and complement their classroom learning. Sessions will occur once a month. During this time, the students will be introduced to various topics, including arts and culture, diversity and human services, economic development, health, law, leadership, and local government.

Students were selected through an extensive application process that included a minimum GPA of 3.0, a demonstration of leadership potential in their school and/or community, an interest in furthering their knowledge about the region and community leadership and approval from their high school principal or guidance counselor.

‚ÄúThis class, like before them, includes an impressive group of motivated and talented students. We‚Äôre excited to assist them along their journey to ensure they are properly equipped to make important leadership decisions in their careers and within their communities,‚ÄĚ said Ann Marie Whelan, Program Director of Regional Youth Leadership. ‚ÄúOver the years, we‚Äôve seen our participants go on to accomplish extraordinary things. I look forward to seeing the difference these class members make as they develop their leadership skills and become the future leaders of tomorrow.‚ÄĚ
