GSLT Applications
We are seeking sophomore students to represent the Ridge on the Gwinnett Student Leadership Team (GSLT). GSLT is a district-wide leadership program with a team of three sophomores, three juniors, and three seniors from each GCPS high school. Students learn leadership concepts and skills, teach the core curriculum to their local community of student leaders, and serve their local high schools and communities. Find out more information about GSLT and the application process on our website and through the recorded info session.

Please complete and submit this application by Friday, October 30 at 11:59 PM. We will communicate next steps by the week of November 2. Send any questions or concerns to prhsgslt@gmail.com.
