A Journey in Leadership
DelQuest is a fun-filled, three day session that every leader of tomorrow needs to attend. This is an exciting and insightful program in which selected participants will receive hands-on leadership training.
The Del City Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the City of Del City offers DelQuest yearly in the fall. Our students are able take advantage of all they experience and apply it to the rest of this school year and, more importantly, into their senior year of high school.
They will tour civic and business facilities and interact with elected officials to solve community-wide issues. DelQuest provides the tools and information that every leader needs to reach success!
An application and selection process is used to choose twenty, or more, high school juniors from public, private and home schools. Last year we had a record 35 applicants, and the committee chose 24 to spend an intense two and a half days and nights with local business leaders learning about the internal operations of local businesses and local government. The students encounter thought provoking, team-building exercises, motivational speakers, and interaction with leaders of the community which will help them to grow as an individual and become a better leader themselves. With so much negativity surrounding our young people, this program will re-establish their confidence in the future, and in themselves, as they prepare to lead the way as the leaders of tomorrow.
If you want to be part of this exclusive group you will need to submit your application by September 24, 2017.
The program is entirely sponsored each year by local businesses and local government. Your contribution can help this viable program remain active in our community. For more information on how to become a sponsor call The Del City Chamber of Commerce at (405) 677-1910.
