Leadership High School Gets Kids Invested in Community
Leadership High School, founded and run for 6 years by Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse (FBRC) and Lamar Consolidated Independent School District, once again formed a partnership between youth and the community. Leadership High School provides youth with
a practical, hands-on overview of how a community operates and gives them a lens to see their future and take on ownership. Sixty sophomores delved into the business of running a community, working in fields of engineering, medical, law enforcement, welding, HVAC, financial management as well as cultural and social needs. “I tell them all, ‘You are going to work real hard for the next fifty or sixty years; get an education so you have options,” said John Robson, COO of FBRC and Achieve Fort Bend board member. The teens also have fun, playing paintball, canoeing, making videos, and launching water balloons, Next year, fifteen more slots will open at the new Fulshear High School. If someone you know would like to be a part of Leadership High School, have them see their school counselor or call Fort Bend Regional Council. The best part of all? It’s it’s free!
