Summer Leadership Academy Explores Water Issues
High School juniors who are interesting in learning how to create positive change in their communities are invited to enroll in the High School Leadership Academy at Alma College.
Participants will explore local issues that affect state, national and global communities. While working with Alma College faculty, participants will produce a documentary video.
This year’s Academy takes place July 10 through 16 on the Alma College campus. Applications are requested by May 15. Questions may be directed to the Alma College Center for Responsible Leadership at (989) 463-7981. Applications forms also are available online.
“The students will use a variety of multimedia tools to create an original documentary video that explores a water-related issue in the local area and connects the local issue to global concerns about water,” says Sally Scheide, assistant director of the Center for Responsible Leadership.
In addition to gaining experience in conducting field research, persuasive storytelling, digital video editing and movie making, participants will expand their leadership skills through interactive sessions in which values, integrity and commitment to action are explored.
The Academy is sponsored by the Center for Responsible Leadership and made possible through a gift from The Dow Chemical Company.
