Columbia, SC is one of only three cities in the country selected to host a new Obama Foundation Community Leadership Corps for young adults, aimed at training leaders and addressing community issues and one of Allen University’s own was selected to be apart of the Initiative.
Gene Morris, ’17 will be a part of a six-month program aimed to train young leaders to engage in civic work. The program offers in-person and online programming to increase leadership skills and expand networks which will guide participants to choose an issue in their communities and collaborate with others from the community to address the issue.
The program includes a two-day kick-off in June, a three-day boot-camp in August and community-based work in September and October.
CONGRATULATIONS GENE! WE ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU!
