FBISD Board of Trustees wishes to invite current FBISD 10th grade students who are interested in developing their leadership during their junior/senior year to apply for participation in the 2020-2021 Student Leadership 101 Program. Through a series of seven monthly seminars, selected participants will explore their personal roles in community and school leadership and volunteer service. School Board members will sponsor and attend the student seminars on topics such as personal leadership skills, youth advocacy, service and volunteerism, local government in action, business, and health care.
This program is limited to upcoming 11th grade students. The 2020-2021 cohort will consist of 33 students with 3 representatives per high school in the district. Applicants should be in good standing based upon grades, attendance, and behavior; have an interest in developing their personal leadership skills; have obtained written permission from their parents; and be willing to accept the attendance and participation expectations.
If selected, participants will commit to a two-year program. In Leadership 101, juniors will observe leadership in action, learn leadership skills from community and school leaders, and develop their own leadership skills. In Leadership 102, seniors will apply their leadership skills in support of community service projects with non- profit agencies. Interested applicants and their parents should review their schedules and commit to the two- year schedule prior to submitting an application. Participants are required to attend each 2020-2021 seminar in its entirety. Full-day seminars are tentatively scheduled for the following Wednesdays during the school year:
All seminars will begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m. in the Board Room of the FBISD Administration Building, 16431 Lexington Blvd, Sugar Land, TX 77479. Students who have the written permission of their parent/guardian may drive to the FBISD Administration Building. Students needing district transportation for the program will be contacted by a staff member from the district’s Transportation Department with the transportation schedule.
The seminars will be conducted at various sites in Fort Bend County, and district transportation to and from the seminar sites will be provided for all students. Students will be provided with a light breakfast, lunch and beverages. On the first day of the seminar, students will participate in team activities at the Clements High School Ropes Course and should wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. For all other days, dress should be business casual.
