I had a fantastic experience with LYLP, even in the virtual environment. The guest speakers brought a variety of leadership skills and experiences that I could easily transfer to my daily life. I was even able to give a presentation at an internship later in the summer with the information I learned from LYLP, which shows how relevant and in-demand the skills we learn are!

Maria Former Participant

When I participated in last year’s Loudoun Youth Leadership Program, I was able to expand my knowledge of leadership skills and qualities by connecting and collaborating with peers by participating in team building exercises. I was also able to learn about the application of leadership skills in different career fields by interacting with local leaders in business, community service, and politics. This opportunity helped me discover new opportunities to merge my career interests with leadership skills learned from this program.
