  • Leadership Programs

    The Thomaston-Upson Chamber offers two different leadership programs geared towards the Upson County community. 

  • Youth Leadership Upson

    The Youth Leadership Upson Program is sanctioned by the Chamber and sponsored by Upson EMC, TenCate Protective Fabrics and Upson-Lee High School. Students must fill out an application form and have two references/recommendations submitted before they are considered for the program.

    The mission of YOUTH LEADERSHIP UPSON is to expose selected high school students exhibiting leadership traits to the business, political and civic working of our community.

    This group is made up of seniors, juniors and sophomores that are residents of Upson County, and who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills in their school, church and community.  Each student is selected for a one-year school term and to successfully complete the program, a student must attend each scheduled class.

    Youth Leadership Upson Applications are now being accepted, CLICK HERE to print out the information needed to apply. Applications will be available at the Chamber office (110 West Main Street, downtown Thomaston) and in the ULHS guidance counselors office beginning Tuesday, August 14.

    The YLU documents are also located here -
