High School Leadership

For Teens from Grades 9 through 11

The Pearl S. Buck International High School Leadership Program is designed for high school students who are interested in making a difference in their community. Open to students in grades 9 through 11, the Leadership Program was created for teens to learn leadership skills and the importance of working together.

Throughout the nine week program, students develop a service project and set goals to implement the project in a timely manner. Past projects include: a 5k run to support the Pearl S. Buck House, a raffle to aid families impacted by a typhoon in the Philippines, a project to fund immunizations, a fundraiser to purchase school supplies for children in the Philippines and an informational video on the High School Leadership Program. The options are endless and the students work together as a team to promote their cause. At the completion of the program, students celebrate their success at a graduation ceremony.
