YHC SOLE Program

Student Opportunities for Leadership through Engagement
Student Opportunities for Leadership through Engagement

Members of the YHC SOLE program are a select group of students who represent Young Harris College through outreach work, building relationships and shared experiences in learning and leadership throughout our community.

YHC SOLE members currently work at a mix of on- and off-campus community partner sites; they may work up to 10 hours per week during the academic year and receive financial compensation through the College and federal work-study programs for their time and commitment. YHC SOLE members meet monthly to discuss local and global issues and determine ways to develop leadership in those areas.

Through planning, discussion and reflection, SOLE members create opportunities to serve their campus and local communities throughout the year. The program has 8 members who are required a minimum number of hours worked (80 hours a semester), as well as a GPA requirement of 2.75. Applications will be accepted in the spring for the following year as members graduate and as positions become open.
