Teen Leadership Internship Program

“An advantage of the Teen Leader Program is its focus on a group assignment. I have become a better group participant and realized that being a leader does not only mean controlling the conversation or influencing others, but also listening to ideas.”
–Jonathan Brown, Frederick Douglass Academy, 12th Grade
