On Wednesday, there will be an open house for sophomore and juniors interested in applying to become a member of Teen Lead.

The program teaches teens leadership skills while they explore topics and occupations in the community.

Participants spend one day a month going to different businesses or agencies in Lodi to learn about city government, agriculture, education, the environment, health and criminal justice.

Children's Dreamworks will also be a giving out a $500 scholarship to one of the students that participates in Teen Lead.

The open house will be from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday and will allow organizers to answer any questions parents and students might have about the program. The open house will be in the Cottage Room at Hutchins Street Square, 125 S. Hutchins St.

All of the students must have at least a 2.5 grade-point average. Interested students can download an application (PDF). Students are encouraged to bring a completed application to the open house.

Similar to Leadership Lodi, the teens will pick a community service project they want to complete as a class. The teens must also complete 20 hours of community service on their own and attend 80 percent of the Teen Lead sessions.
