Leadership program for high school students

Anybody here have experiences with leadership programs they'd recommend for high school students? I'm trying to develop my leadership skills and would love to do a program during the summer or weekends. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you're looking to develop your leadership skills. There are various leadership programs available for high school students. One option can be attending programs organized by colleges. For instance, you can explore options like the Harvard Summer School Pre-College Program, which offers leadership seminars and workshops along with other subjects. Similarly, some universities like Yale and Stanford offer summer programs with leadership courses as well.

Another avenue to consider is participating in programs sponsored by organizations like the National Student Leadership Conference and the Global Leadership Adventures. These programs are specifically designed for developing leadership skills and often conduct workshops, simulations, or community service projects.

Lastly, don't forget about the local opportunities you might have. Many high schools and communities offer clubs, organizations, or volunteering groups that allow you to step up as a leader and develop your skills within your community.
