The Walton Chamber Youth Leadership Walton Program begins in the Junior year of high school.  We involve students from all member high schools, totaling 4 public high schools and 3 private high schools.

In the Junior year, the students receive CEO level leadership training through UGA JW Fanning Institute and in the Senior year, community awareness programs.

We are excited about the positive impact this program has on our schools and community.
