Leadership Greater Hartford’s Summer Nexus program is accepting applications and is offering scholarships for this innovative youth leadership program. Want to do something fulfilling this summer? Want to receive cutting-edge leadership development training? Want to have an experience full of fun and memories?

This week long program is open to high school students entering grades 10-12 in fall 2012 from both public and private schools for a crash course in leadership development and community involvement. Participants will engage in workshops that include public speaking, diversity, conflict resolution, decision-making, personal finance, social media, anti-bullying, and college preparatory. Youth will plan and implement their own community service project and tour the capital city and meet with various community leaders.

Summer Nexus 2012 will be based at Trinity College while utilizing other city locations. The program beings August 5 with an overnight retreat followed by 8:30am – 5pm programming from August 6-11. The Ted Carroll Scholarship Fund, created in 2011 in honor of Leadership Greater Hartford’s President of 25 years, will provide five (5) full scholarships to Summer Nexus. Space is limited.

Pooling students from both urban and suburban schools, Summer Nexus brings people of differing interests and backgrounds together. The program provides a holistic approach to leadership training, focusing on advancing the person and urging them to develop as a thinker, leader, creator, and innovator. A recent Summer Nexus participant remarked, “I really liked interacting with other teens who don’t look like me. We all shared our differences and got along well.”

For more information regarding Summer Nexus or to apply for a scholarship, contact Program Director Andre Santiago at 860.951.6161 x11 or email andre.santiago@leadershipgh.org. To download an application visit www.leadershipgh.org.
