Future Leaders of Shawnee

Future LeadersCalling all teens interested in expanding your leadership skills and learning more about our municipal government! Jump start your career in public service by applying to the Shawnee Future Leaders program. Chosen leaders will meet once a month from September to April and learn through hands-on work just what it’s like to be a public servant. The program will culminate with a banquet for program graduates, where they will be awarded the Shawnee Future Leader Fit for Public Service and Leadership Certificate from the Mayor and City Manager. 

This program serves an opportunity to learn more about the City of Shawnee, gain priceless leadership skills, and learn from a wide variety of city employees across multiple departments. Mentorships with City staff based upon interests and connections made during the program will also be available to members of the Future Leaders program as they graduate and continue forward to wherever their new public service experience will take them. 

Shawnee Future Leaders is currently accepting applications for all 9-12th graders until September 1, 2023. Preference will be given to Shawnee residents, but all area students are encouraged to apply! If you would like to apply, please complete the application and return it to Kate Kinkaid at [email protected] by  September 1, 2023.
