Our kick-off retreat will again be virtual this year, but the remainder of our program days are planned face-to-face. Click the retreat times schedule box to find your scheduled date/time.

Hello I hope you all are enjoying your summer. I want to bring to your attention a new and unique opportunity now open to just the students in SLJC. An alumni of SLJC now working with a startup company in Nashville is looking to take on a team of Leadership students to work with their CEO and team.
The company is called FutureSelf Discover. FSD is an inclusive online community where young people are empowered to take control of their futures. The platform provides a space for young adults to connect with employers, get certified in specific skills, and gain access to curated information and insights that will help them understand educational opportunities and career paths. FSD is now seeking a team from SLJC to help them with outreach in the JC community, sponsorship partnership ideas, and collaboration on current projects.




This is a unique opportunity to get experience working closely with a team and a startup. Ambassadors will gain translatable skills ideal for a resume and a meaningful experience for any college application. Please email Caroline Custis caroline.g.custis@vanderbilt.edu for more information.

The deadline to apply is July 1st.
