Bucks Offers Leadership Training for Teens This Summer
High school students can learn what it takes to be a leader at two one-week-long workshops at the Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in July and August
Bucks County Community College, which has been a leader in innovative education for young people for more than 50 years, introduces leadership training for high school students this summer at the Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in Bristol Township.
The workshops, each four days long, cover Innovative Leadership and Leadership in Action, according to Associate Professor Kelly Sell.
“The immersive experience exposes high school students to the 21st-century skills that are imperative for students to succeed in their academic and career lives,” said Sell, who will be leading each workshop designed for rising high school sophomores and juniors.
Innovative Leadership, which takes place July 15 to 18, includes team building, hearing motivational speakers, meeting entrepreneurs, and a field trip. Leadership in Action, from August 5 to 8, focuses on solving real-world problems at a local level. Workshops include team building, meeting community leaders, and a field trip.
Each workshop meets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks, located at 1304 Veterans Highway, Bristol, Pa. Tuition for each workshop is $295.
