Applications are being accepted for The Solomon Leadership Program, designed for high school students who aspire to be active community leaders.
The curriculum centers around the eight pillars of mentorship: character, tolerance, communication, vision, empowerment, persistence, strategy, and judgment.
“The free program is open to all high school students, and no affiliation to Chabad is necessary to be eligible for the scholarship,” said Mendy Freund, Chabad of Parkland administrator.
To qualify for the program, students must exhibit leadership skills beyond the classroom.
“High school students don’t get enough leadership training in school,” says Lawrence Sosnow, Solomon Leadership Program co-founder and co-chairman. “This is about how to teach young people to be good leaders,” according to an interview with Palm Beach Illustrated.
The Solomon Leadership Program operates as a partnership of the Sosnow Foundation and Palm Beach Synagogue, with Chabad of Parkland working as one of the local chapters. Last April, 20 students graduated.
The accredited program is worth three transferable credits to any college and provides students with a unique experience, forming a long-lasting relationship with their mentor while growing to understand a broader perspective on leadership, according to its eligibility process.
