Teen Leadership Programs

Being a teen especially today is not easy. Teens are faced with many different challenges during their adolescent years. Our teen programs tackle the issues they are facing and help to educate and inform them in a safe environment with their peers to support one another. Speakers are brought in throughout the year to talk about many different topics.

What Will Girls Learn?

Girls will begin to develop leadership and life skills while building relationships that demonstrate the value of mentorship, networking, peer support and community engagement. They will also learn the importance of advocacy and social justice through many different opportunities. Teens are also challenged to give back to the greater community through volunteering, with many different opportunities for giving back available during the school year.

There are two tracks of Teen Leadership Programs offered:

  • Leaders in Training – For girls in middle school
  • Junior Leaders – For girls in high school

Both programs tackle the same objectives and work together for many events and activities; however, they have program time dedicated to their respective age groups to give them a forum to feel comfortable sharing, engaging and participating in the topics being discussed.

There is a fee for the program; please refer to the Register page for a full list of current catalog options.
