Now in its sixth year, Leadership Prince William’s Summer Youth Academy is planned for July 13-24, 2020. The two-week day camp is designed for rising 7th through 9th graders who live or attend school in Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park.

What’s in it for the students? 

  • Enhanced team-building, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, negotiation, time management and other skills necessary for personal leadership development;
  • Working with a diverse cross-section of peers from across their community;
  • Chance to design and manage a community service project with a team.
  • Field trips to relevant local sites including the Public Safety Training Academy, Adult Detention Center, Micron Technology, historical sites & more! All field trips will reinforce the leadership skills taught throughout the two weeks;
  • The opportunity to discover how their unique thinking and behavioral attributes influence their leadership style. Plus, how to work with others who may see the world differently;
  • Meetings with local leaders in business, government and education.
