Student Leadership 101

  • FBISD Student Leadership 101 Program 

    The Fort Bend ISD Student Leadership 101 Cohort application is open for the 2024-25 school year. Apply here

    FBISD's Board of Trustees invites current FBISD sophomores who are interested in developing their leadership during their junior year to apply for participation in the 2024-25 Student Leadership 101 Program. Through a series of seven monthly seminars, selected participants will explore their personal roles in community and school leadership, and volunteer service. School Board members will sponsor and attend the student seminars and speak on topics such as personal leadership skills, youth advocacy, service and volunteerism, local government in action, business, and health care.

    This program is limited to upcoming juniors. The 2024-25 cohort will consist of 36 students with 3 representatives per high school in the District. Applicants should be in good standing based upon grades, attendance, and behavior; have an interest in developing their personal leadership skills; have permission from their parents or guardians; and be willing to accept the attendance and participation expectations.

    If selected, participants will commit to a two-year program. In Leadership 101, juniors will observe leadership in action, learn leadership skills from community and school leaders, and develop their own leadership skills. In Leadership 102, seniors will apply their leadership skills in support of community service projects with non-profit agencies. Interested applicants and their parents should review their schedules and commit to the two-year schedule prior to submitting an application. Participants are required to attend each 2024-25 seminar in its entirety. Full-day seminars will take place on Wednesdays during the school year.

    Students who have the written permission of their parent/guardian may drive to the FBISD Administration Building. Students needing District transportation for the program will be contacted by a staff member from the District's Transportation Department with the transportation schedule.

    The seminars will be conducted at various sites in Fort Bend County, and District transportation to and from the seminar sites will be provided for all students. Students will be provided with a light breakfast, lunch and beverages. On the first day of the seminar, students will participate in team activities at Clements High School Ropes Course and should wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. For all other days, dress should be business casual.

    Students may only serve on ONE district level student leadership cohort to ensure we provide opportunities to as many emerging leaders as possible.

    The application will close on April 28, 2024 at midnight.
