About MyTown

Leadership Program

Leadership Program

The MyTown Leadership Program serves to develop and enhance leadership qualities of the already established leaders as deemed by their coaches, teachers, administrators, or peers. The goal is not to create a singular type of leader, but a diverse team of leaders that can work and thrive together with the common goal of uplifting the people around them.


MyTown Team

Who– Capable leaders at the chosen Institution .  

What– Leadership Program designed to create leaders in their community.

Where– At home, at work, and in the community

When– Participants will plan their own schedules based on which level they want to achieve 

Why-Teaching Participants how the value of leadership, and how to lead with love.



MyTown Team

We are trying to select a group of young adults who have the potential for the greatest impact on those around them. The best was to do this is by working as a team with the people closest to them in their leadership capacities.  By working as a team with mentors and peers, those selected will be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities of the program and be given the support to accomplish the goals they set forth.


MyTown Team Requirements

Requirements have been carefully selected to serve as the fundamental baseline for the prospective leadership program applicants.  These requirements signify applicants are working towards self-improvement and that they have shown the necessary qualities to be leaders in their community.  Leaders are recognized by a number of different sources and every one them plays a vital role in their growth.  The recruitment process will begin with specified adult recommendations, but extended to Team members who recognize leadership abilities among their peers.
