Future Leaders in Business

Future Leaders in Business (FLIB) is a 7-month program for a small and select group of teens entering 10th – 12th grades that will begin in the fall. Each month, “FLIB-bers” will meet with and learn from community members who are leaders in their fields: presidents and CEOs of companies, working professionals, creatives, and so many more! The students will be exposed to many different industries and career paths and be empowered to explore possibilities for their futures.

Please note: that while in the past we have traveled to meet with our presenters at their offices using J on Wheels, this year’s programs will be held on Zoom for the foreseeable future. If circumstances change and we are able to meet in person, we will make the necessary amendments to the program. 

Applications are now closed for 2020-21 school year. 

Questions? Please reach out to Adina Weinberg at aweinberg@jccdallas.org
