Our three-year Leader in Training program (for teens in grades 10-12) operates year-round, both during the summer and throughout the academic year. The program aims to help young people realize their potential as they go through high school. Each participant is paired with an advisor, who helps them navigate high school and explore post-secondary plans. Each young person in the program is afforded a paid summer job at Camp Harbor View, acting as a junior camp counselor and near-peer mentor to campers.
**In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, elements of Leadership Academy programs have shifted for the 2020 – 2021 school year. The health and safety of participants and staff remain our top priority. We’ll continue to hold programs online at this time.**
