What is EPL:
Furman’s Emerging Public Leaders is a leadership and civic engagement program for high school students sponsored by the Richard W. Riley Institute at Furman University. This week-long summer program (June 16-21, 2019) offers a series of experiences that enable students to develop into civic-minded and engaged leaders in their communities. During the week, participants attend workshops at Furman that prepare them to plan and implement a service project addressing a specific need within their own communities. Students will then return to campus in the spring to present the results of their projects to their peers and a panel of judges. Additional project funds are awarded to the winner.
“EPL is amazing! This week taught me so much that that traditional school setting could never have taught me. For the first time I learned about public speaking, leadership through service (Frazee and Soup kitchen), and the importance of using your strengths as well as others’.” – Reilly Arford, current senior at Ridge View High School, EPL Class of 2018-2019
