Discover your leadership talents through our year-long leadership institute. The Teen Leadership Institute is currently accepting applications from high school girls in grades 9-12 interested in developing their leadership potential in El Paso, TX. A select group of high school girls will be chosen to participate in our leadership program to learn how they can become a strong voice for their community. Members will commit to monthly meetings throughout the school semester to learn about civic engagement, develop leadership techniques, explore social justice topics, connect with community leaders, attend field trips and organize volunteer projects. The membership fee for the semester-long program is $20. The institute will kick-off with a conference on September 10th at the Clardy Fox Public Library from 10:00am to 4:30pm followed by monthly workshops. The deadline to apply is September 1st.
