Applications For 9th District's Congressional Leadership Program Being Accepted

Last updated on Tuesday, February 4, 2014

(UNDATED) - Representative Todd Young announced that the 9th District Congressional offices are accepting applications for the 9th District’s Congressional Leadership Program.

Indiana's 9th District includes all or parts of Brown, Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Johnson Lawrence, Monroe, Morgan, Orange, Scott, and Washington counties.

The program, developed and launched by Young's staff in 2012, introduces college and graduate students to their region and develops their leadership skills so they can effectively serve their community.

CLP's sessions are designed to help a diverse group of high-achieving college and graduate students learn more about the strengths and challenges of their community and how they might live a life engaged in addressing those issues.

Applicants should be residents of, or attending college or graduate school in, the 9th Congressional District. CLP class size is limited, so the application process is competitive. Priority consideration will be given to those who apply by March 15, 2014. Applicants must attend at least four out of five sessions to successfully complete the program.

Potential applicants who have questions should contact the Jeffersonville Constituent Service Center at812-288-3999. The application and a sample calendar of activities can be found at http://toddyoung.house.gov/congressional-leadership-program/
