Youth Leadership Academy Registration 2014

Due to an overwhelming response,
the Youth Leadership Academy and waitlist are now full.

The registration for the 2014 Youth Leadership Academy is now closed.

Sheriff Michael Bellotti's highly popular Youth Leadership Academy is open to Norfolk County youngsters aged 10 to 14. It is designed to enhance teamwork, confidence, communication skills and leadership abilities.

The academy is held at the Braintree Public Safety Complex, centers around our extensive low and high ropes course under the supervision of specially trained instructors.

The academy opens with games to "break the ice" and problem-solving activities. The high ropes offer challenges from 10 feet up to 40 feet that help develop self-confidence and personal goal setting. All challenges are presented to the participant on a challenge-by-choice basis. The program also includes workshops on anti-bullying and fire safety.
