2021 NEXGEN leadership program underway
Southern Indiana Leadership’s 2021 NEXGEN class began Jan. 12, 2021.
“It’s 2021, so let’s bring the fun even if virtually, even during a pandemic and social unrest, this is an exciting opportunity to bring these young leaders together to help them shift and grow into our future business owners, politicians, professionals and innovators,” said Anne Gardner Darku, LeadershipSI Director of Programs.
The first day offers students a discussion of financial literacy. Speakers included, Bryan Wickens, Administrative Vice President/General Counsel, MAC Construction; Meredith Clipp-Rodriguez, Executive Director, Catalyst Rescue Mission; Ian Williams, CEO, President & Co-Founder, Reconcile Consulting; and Dr. Erin Yetter, University of Arizona.
At a glance, the students received three key pieces of advice: 1. Pay yourself first — put money into your savings account every paycheck; 2. We are not all starting from the same place. We do not have the same opportunities, and 3. Always, always, ALWAYS stay within your means!
“Understanding money can be one of the most challenging aspects of early ‘adulting,’” said Darku.
NEXGEN is Southern Indiana’s award-winning youth leadership program that was added in 2014 to the programs. Open to any high school junior in the Southern Indiana region, the program’s objectives provide experiences for young leaders of the community to encourage their future success. The 2021 class includes 65 students from Jeffersonville, Rock Creek, Silver Creek, Providence, New Washington, Renaissance Academy, Community Montessori, Christian Academy, Clarksville, New Albany, Charlestown and Floyd Central.
The students who participate in the program benefit from:
• Increased awareness of self and strengths as a leader.
• Increased awareness of the vastness of our community through business exposure, including corporate, small business, non-profit, civic and government.
• Developing a real-world view of life after high school through financial literacy and business etiquette.
• Opportunity to network with the Southern Indiana region’s business leaders.
The NEXGEN program also benefits the community because:
• Students are encouraged to look at the community as a place to live, work and play after high school, college or trade school.
• Students are better prepared to deal with finances and have demonstrated their ability to give back to their community with their time, talent and treasure.
Students are engaged and actively involved in the community. The class will have two more virtual meetings on Feb. 2 and March 4, all leading up to an in-person graduation on April 13.

• Charlestown High School: Aarelyn Johnson, Alyssa Moore, Kaleigh Swisher, Amanda Upton, Trinity Weatherbee, Alex Wright
