Students participating in the Stanislaus County Leadership Academy will meet on Friday, Feb. 5 for Media Day. Students will learn about the media from Never Boring before they hear strategies for future employment branding from E & J Gallo executives. Students will also learn about social media dangers and digital citizenship. The day will conclude with tips for dealing with the media along with hands on practical applications.
Stanislaus County Office of Education’s Prevention Programs Department oversees the Leadership Academy Program. Students representing schools throughout the county meet one day each month throughout the school year. They learn about emerging community issues, are provided opportunities to expand their knowledge of academics and work ethics, and gain an awareness of local career availability. One of the goals of Leadership Academy is to raise awareness of careers available locally to students after they graduate from college or trade school.
