Abstract:

Senior Seminar Psychology students were invited by the Darien/McIntosh Chamber of Commerce to assist Director Mandy Harrison in designing a Youth Leadership Program for outstanding high school students.  The students met with Chamber officials, visited the community, and gathered information from other Chamber Youth Leadership Programs across the country to tailor a program specifically for McIntosh. The Psychology students produced a template for the six-month program including, among other items, nomination forms, a student contract, a flyer for teachers, an evaluation tool, and recommended activities in various domains specific to McIntosh County.
