Young Leaders Academy
Young Leaders Academy is a program designed for sophomores and juniors in regional schools to help steer your professional development and navigate best leadership practices.
Invest In You
Build your network of colleagues, develop your leadership skills and have fun exploring evidence-based leadership practices. Our redesigned six-month program lets high-school students identify areas for growth with time to intentionally practice their skills.
We aim to guide each participant on their journey to become a more authentic, vibrant leader who can then share his/her gifts with communities across Northwest Indiana.
We focus on guiding our participants toward professional growth, leadership exposure and civic engagement through skill-building sessions.
Regional leaders will join us to share their skills and insight into the region’s culture, assets and leadership challenges.
When: One full-day session each month for 6 months.
Where: Leadership Institute at Purdue Northwest, located in the Purdue Northwest Meeting Facility, 6100 Southport Road, Portage.
The 2020 session for Young Leaders Academy cost $1,000 for the year.
