Programs to Connect Businesses and Build Community
iLead, a Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce Program is a unique opportunity for high school students that was adapted from the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership and Community Development of the University of Georgia in partnership with Tisk Task. The program focuses on leadership skills, communicating effectively, appreciating differences, team building, managing conflict, goal setting and community involvement. Another important element of the program is providing students from different schools an opportunity to meet and learn from one another.
