In the Community – Supporting Youth Leadership Collier

 

The Print Shop & More, now along with parent company Palm Printing, has long supported all the  Programs for Leadership Collier, a part of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce.  Tim Philbrick, Director of Sales and Marketing, is now in his tenth year as a weekend retreat facilitator of the successful program whose mission is to develop ethical leaders committed to active community involvement

Now approaching their thirteenth year of programming, YLC has reached over 400 students to date. YLC empowers students to become effective leaders through hands on experiences and field work with key organizations, while encouraging returning or staying in Collier County to begin careers and community leadership.

​Youth Leadership Collier is a week-long intensive program that begins with a weekend of team-building and leadership enhancing activities. Participants then interact in daily sessions designed to give them first-hand experience in different aspects of the community. Topics include local government, healthcare, law enforcement, business, agriculture, media, human services, environment, and the arts.

“We feel great continuing our involvement with a program that helps grow local young leadership” says owner Randy Darrow. “Hearing the stories of success from graduates 18 to 30+ years of age is an inspiration for the immediate future of our community.”
