Strong Student Leadership

In partnership with area high schools, The Foundation invests in the lives of high school juniors and seniors to help them clarify their identity, discover their strengths, and set themselves up for future success as they prepare for life beyond high school.

Through weekly training sessions and mentoring relationships, each student bolsters his or her sense of self and develops the foundation necessary to live well now and to lead well in the future.

Currently, we develop students at Newton-Conover High School, HCAM (Hickory Career & Arts Magnet High School), and Hickory High School.  We plan to expand this project to more area high schools in coming years.

If you’d like to participate as a mentor, sponsor, or supporter, contact us today.
