Leadership Lackawanna’s youth program, Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT), recently met for its first session, which included an orientation, leadership basics and philanthropy. This session was sponsored by Penn State Scranton; however, the entire program is made possible by the support of NBT Bank, the official TLT 2019-2020 Corporate Program sponsor.

Leadership Lackawanna’s seven-month Tomorrow’s Leaders Today program develops the leadership, interpersonal and managerial skills of high school juniors while giving them an enhanced understanding of northeastern Pennsylvania as well as the opportunity to explore teamwork.
