Fairfax County Youth Leadership Program Accepting Applications for Class of 2005
The Youth Leadership Program is currently accepting applications from high school juniors enrolled in Fairfax County Public Schools for this leadership opportunity, which includes a paid three-week summer internship in a Fairfax County government agency or office.
The Youth Leadership Program is sponsored by a partnership between Fairfax County government and Fairfax County Public Schools to prepare high school students to become tomorrow’s community leaders. One to two interns are selected from each Fairfax County public high school based on their achievement, leadership, commitment to active citizenship and volunteerism. The goal of the Youth Leadership Program is to help high school students gain an understanding and appreciation of how local government impacts their everyday lives. Interns will attend monthly meetings, meet community leaders and gain insight into the services county government provides. The three-week paid internship will take place July 11 - 29, 2005, and is designed for training opportunities and site visits to expand each intern’s knowledge of public service within Fairfax County.
Students should see their school guidance director or a member of the faculty in their social studies department for a brochure and application or go to https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dmb/FCYLP.htm to learn more about the program or to download the application.
Applications are due on Oct. 30, 2004, to Youth Leadership Program teacher sponsors or the guidance director in each high school.
