Youth Leadership Summer Program

The Youth Leadership Summer Program is a one-week interactive experience that allows high school students to connect with Stark County and the people, places, and vision propelling it ahead. They will learn about Stark County through interactions with local leaders and community stewards as well as touring interesting sites and projects.  Students will also learn how to collaborate, develop leadership skills and discover how they can get involved in their community now!


A diverse roster of students will learn together and from each other in a week full of thought-provoking sessions. They will develop teamwork and leadership skills to use in the next step of their lives. The group will hear about Stark County’s issues and assets from leaders, experts, and organizations in the community as well as gaining some hands-on volunteer experience.


Cost is $300. Leadership Stark County will work with you to provide financial assistance if necessary.
The Youth Leadership Summer Program is open to NE Ohio high school students who will enter their sophomore, junior, or senior year in the fall. <br />
