Leadership Tomorrow was developed for high school juniors and is hosted by the Chamber. The program mirrors the Leadership Lufkin program. Students in the program have the opportunity to learn about Angelina County firsthand, to explore opportunities that exist for their futures in this area, and to give back to the community through community volunteer service.
The class year will begin with an Opening Reception to welcome students and thank their sponsors. During the following seven months, the students will attend a day on the Ropes Course, and five additional sessions that educate them on social services, health care, education, local economy and government in Angelina County. Also included in the program will be three community volunteer projects.
- Applicant must be a junior in high school in Angelina County

- Applicant must pay $60 toward program expenses
