Horizons High School Leadership Program (HHSLP) is currently being developed to strengthen and build
communities, improve student academic achievement, skills, dispositions, and to prepare our students to
graduate from high school.
HHSLP will develop individual competence and leadership skills. Twice a month during the school year,
students will have classes, presentations, pathway counseling, leadership opportunities, college visits, and
community service options. The goal is to ease the transition into high school, help with academics, provide general guidance, assist with college preparation and vocational direction and to integrate students into the local workforce.
Partnerships with local businesses and academic institutions will be integral to the program. Students will
engage in “real world” activities such as mock job interviews, conduct online career and college inventories,
and explore part- and full-time employment opportunities, including Horizons internships. HHSLP will
develop a "shadowing" program to rebuild students’ confidence and make up for the loss of social skills
during the pandemic. There will be a focus on strengthening skills, developing resumes, and interacting with community leaders and each other. HHSLP will not only impact the community's youth at this important juncture in their lives, but will also help the community address its workforce needs.
Students who express interest in college will be given guidance regarding affording college, financial literacy, and life skills. HHSLP will facilitate discussions around students’ strengths, limitations, likes and dislikes and will connect their interests with colleges that offer compatible majors.
