Leadership Cumberland’s Junior Leadership Program (JLP) is for high school students in their Junior year. The 6-month series features day-long sessions throughout Cumberland County. The JLP curriculum acquaints emerging leaders with community needs, opportunities, challenges, and resources while giving them the opportunity to develop leadership, communication, and team-building skills. The program is offered to Central Pennsylvania’s private, public, and parochial school students. For more information on the Junior Leadership Program, you can contact Leadership Cumberland or visit their website at www.leadershipcumberland.org.
Sam’s Spoons Foundation was created in 2018 to help defray the out of pocket expenses incurred by families affected by chronic medical conditions from Lyme Disease and co-infections. Chronic Lyme Disease is not only difficult to manage, but it means that people are left 100% financially responsible for their treatment. This foundation is focused on helping those in need financially while working with other nonprofit organizations to raise awareness, provide educational outreach efforts for youth and their families, instill the importance of prevention, and push important policies around tick bites and Lyme Disease in Pennsylvania. To learn more about Sam’s Spoons Foundation, you can visit their website at www.samsspoons.org.
