The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce 2018-2019 Young Adult Liberty Leaders (YALL) class kicked off the year with orientation at the Hinesville branch of Live Oak Public Library on Sept. 27.
In this first session, class participants were introduced to program details and completed leadership and team building activities led by members of the YALL Committee. Chick-fil-A Hinesville sponsored lunch and the owner, Nick Westbrook, was the guest lunch speaker.
“We are always proud to say that we bring this program to the youth of Liberty County. The value that the students receive is immeasurable, as is the experience and understanding of how a great community works together,” said Chamber CEO Leah Poole.
Young Adult Liberty Leaders is entering its 13th year as a community leadership initiative. Class participants take part in an intense 9-month class, meeting at least once per month and learning about various functions of the community to include: county government, city government, public health, public education, tourism and economic development. Different local civic, business and government entities host the class each month. This leadership course is part of a statewide collaborative, sponsored by the Georgia Rural Development Council in partnership with The Fanning Institute for Leadership at the University of Georgia.
