Southlake Kids Interested in Leadership (SKIL)
Southlake Kids Interested in Leadership (S.K.I.L.) is a program created in partnership between the City, the Carroll Independent School District, and the Southlake Chamber of Commerce. The S.K.I.L. program seeks to facilitate opportunities for advanced engagement by the City’s youth, whereby they become more than informants and contributors but are valued as collaborators and decision-makers.
This leadership program is a student and adult alliance for better government and a better Southlake. Students will participate in a meaningful way to make the Southlake community better. By training future leaders, we will foster an interest in good government and open ourselves up to a new generation of ideas.
How to participate as a student
All Juniors at Carroll Senior High School are eligible to apply for S.K.I.L., and any private school or home school student who resides in Southlake. The S.K.I.L. leadership program selects 25 high school junior students (20 Carroll Senior High School students). Each student interested in participating will need to apply and submit during the application period. A selection process will commence, administered by Carroll Senior High School, and the students will then be selected and begin their leadership journey.
Eddie Morman ([email protected]) with Carroll Senior High will serve as the primary point of contact for any student with questions. For any city-related questions or if you would like to contribute to the program, please contact the City staff liaison Bora Sulollari (817- 748-8645 or [email protected]).
