The Hershey Company is seeking eight (8) Key Club members to join the inaugural year of The Hershey Company Youth Leadership Program. The program brings together Key Club members with Hershey’s business leaders to develop initiatives that improve community well-being and sustainability.
Eight Key Club members (one from each Hershey’s Track & Field Games program region), The Great 8, will be selected to participate in a year-long leadership program to develop a new service learning project for The Hershey Company and Key Club International. Selected Key Club members will develop skills and experience in program development and evaluation, event planning, media and public relations and communications.
The Great 8 will work as a team to design and implement a new service program to promote active play and access to play spaces for youth (grades K-6) and their families through Hershey’s Track & Field Games local meets and existing community events.
Highlights of the program include:
- Developing the program name, activities and event play book
- Leading local community test and learn events
