Coshocton County Youth Leadership, a Coshocton Foundation program, provided a basic foundation of leadership skills for these high school juniors to build upon. It assisted in the development of communication skills and presented an opportunity to interact with community leaders and fellow participants. Through this experience, CCYL participants gained an awareness of Coshocton County’s resources, challenges and opportunities. CCYL began in July with a two-day retreat followed by seven monthly half-day sessions and an all-day closing session. This program receives financial support from the Coshocton Foundation, the Dunmire Family Fund, the Simpson Family Donor Advised Fund, River View Schools Fund, Coshocton City Schools Foundation Fund, Frontier Community Connection Fund and numerous individual donors.
