Next Generation Marion County is our initiative to prepare all students to become leaders by giving them training and opportunities to develop leadership skills.
The MCPS Student Ambassador program is our signature leadership opportunity. Each year, a group of Marion County High School students are selected to serve as student ambassadors where they participate in board of education meetings, provide tours of school campuses, assist with community events, and assume numerous other leadership and mentorship responsibilities.
The success of the MCPS Student Ambassadors has also generated similar programs at both the middle school and elementary school levels.
We’ve also created leadership opportunities through student enterprise, clubs and organizations, school-wide curriculum, and a host of other avenues.
