2013 SLA

The Summer Leadership Academy aims to provide youths in low income areas with life skills and leadership training during the summer months. By reaching out to these underserved children, the program hopes to directly enrich the student’s lives, and in turn to have the benefit spread toward the betterment of the surrounding community. The Academy will address subjects such as career awareness, character development, leadership, & community service involvement. 
The Summer Leadership Academy has formed from an idea to bring needed programming and resources to neighborhoods by developing a framework to revitalize unoccupied buildings. Viewing the recent school consolidations as an opportunity for these facilities to continue to serve their communities, the base goal is to
bring new life and amenities to the neighborhood by providing communities with strong cores of social, economic and environmental infrastructure to foster positive growth and support. Simultaneously, we seek to preserve the infrastructure of the school to meet future educational needs.
