Pearl S. Buck International High School Leadership Program
For Teens from Grades 9 through 11 

The nine-week Pearl S. Buck International High School Leadership Program is available to area high school students entering 9th, 10th and 11th grade.

Students must complete an application, provide two references, and make a commitment to attend all sessions and complete a service project. Click here to read an article featuring one of the service projects. Participants will develop a broad array of leadership skills and a fundamental understanding of how to apply those skills for personal development and service projects. They will graduate with the ability, desire, and skills to make meaningful, lifelong contributions within the community.

Each participant will complete a personal needs analysis and engage in goal setting, team building, project planning, decision making, and other leadership exercises. The training culminates in a service project, created and implemented by participants, and a final group presentation. Students must dedicate at least 30 hours for lesson time plus additional time to complete the service project. Click here to read what past graduates learned from the Pearl S. Buck International High School Leadership Program.

The program is fully funded by Comcast Cable Communications.
