The Summer Youth Academy is a two-week program to help students develop lifelong leadership skills, connect with other young leaders and learn about their community.

  • Field trips to local historic sites, the Public Safety Training Center, Micron Technology & much more!
  • Explore possible education & career paths.
  • Hands-on activities like a town hall meeting, personal budgeting and anti-bullying.
  • Academy participants design and manage their own community service project.
  • Learn about their individual leadership and communications style–and how to be a more effective team member–through Emergenetics.

Participants in the Youth Academy must be rising 7th through 9th graders. They must live or attend school in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park.

Leaders in Training must be rising 10th through 12 graders. They have an opportunity to attend the Academy, serve as role models for younger students, participate in field trips and receive their Emergenetics profile at no cost in exchange for assisting with Academy activities and supporting younger students at the Academy. Applications for Leaders in Training are no longer being accepted. Check back in 2019!
