Teen Leadership Rockland is a leadership development program for sophomore level high school students. The program connects students with leadership potential with peers and community leaders through interactive seminars.
Students are required to attend ALL sessions in full. Business casual dress is expected.
This program is open to all Rockland County sophomore level high school students who are interested in developing leadership skills to make contributions to their schools and communities while preparing for college and future careers. No current leadership experience is required; a demonstrated ability to take initiative and a commitment to learning are equally important to the members of the selection committee.
All programs will be held in Rockland County. A list of sites will be provided at the Orientation session. Families must make arrangements for students to be dropped off and picked up at the program sites.
The program cost for those interviewed in July or August is $150, and the cost for those interviewed in September is $175,* due upon acceptance to the program. Financial assistance is available for families with demonstrated need.
*Refund requests will not be accepted after the program has started.
