Loudoun Youth Inc.’s 2017 Loudoun Youth Leadership Program will have a new look for this year’s summer sessions, thanks to a change of venue from previous years.
Participants in both one-week long sessions will stay an overnight in the Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg and take part in team building and survival activities at nearby Empower Adventures. Loudoun Youth Leadership Program sessions will take place July 10-14 and July 31-Aug. 4.
The program is designed to introduce youth to leadership concepts and to provide exposure and interaction with local business, government and community leaders. The participants consist of high school students who live in Loudoun County. Each class is limited to 26 students; the selections have already been made.
“We’ve got a very impressive group of students this year and to top it off we are thrilled to be partnering with Empower Adventures for the first time,” said LYI Executive Director Steve Wolfson. “Students will participate in exciting challenges specifically designed with corporate team building and youth leadership development in mind, that strengthens relationships, improves trust and challenges individuals to step outside of their comfort zones. And to round out our first day in each session, we are looking forward to overnight accommodations at the beautiful Salamander Resort & Spa.”
