Logo with tag transparent

Today marks the official launch of Leadership Thurston County’s new youth program, which is in partnership with the New Market Skills Center and aims to engage high school students in exploring career opportunities while touring Thurston County. 

For the 2024 summer session, all high school students enrolled in one of the 13 programs offered through New Market Skills Center will have the opportunity to explore their summer school program industry through a day of site visits and tours throughout the county.  

Each program day includes 3-5 site visits and tours, during which students will meet with experienced professionals who are passionate about guiding and inspiring the next generation of community leaders.

Thank you to our Program Day sponsors, TwinStar Credit Union and South Puget Sound Community College; to our Transportation Sponsors, Intercity Transit and TAGS Awards and Specialties; and to our Lunch Sponsors, Freshii, Kiley Juergens Wealth Management, and Panowicz Jewelers. Many individuals sponsored a student to ensure all students had an opportunity to participate at no cost to them or to New Market Skills Center.

Leadership Thurston County is a program of the Thurston County Chamber Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) educational, non-profit organization and has been developing informed, skilled and committed community leaders since 1994. For information, please go to http://leadthurstoncounty.com/.
