The Norfolk County Sheriff's Youth Leadership Academies are designed to help youths age 10-to-14 develop the crucial skills needed in the modern world. Using experiential and adventure education, participants in the academy learn to overcome challenges and reflect on what they learned and the skills they needed to be successful. This helps young participants set goals and come up with strategies on how to achieve these goals.
The popular Braintree Youth Leadership Academy for Norfolk County youth aged 10 to 14 years old will be offered from June 20th to August 18th this year. The academy, which features a low and high ropes challenge course, seeks to develop: decision making skills, problem solving skills, communication skills, goal-setting skills, and provides participants with public safety classes such as fire safety, K9s in law enforcement, etc. The Academy takes place at the Braintree Public Safety Complex at 2015 Washington Street in Braintree.
We are very excited to bring the Youth Leadership Academy to Medway this summer. The Academy will be based at the Medway High School from July 10th to August 4th. The Medway Youth Leadership Academy features all of the exciting and life-changing activities of the Braintree Youth Leadership Academy, including a low and high ropes challenge course, and a focus on helping youth develop decision making skills, problem solving skills, communication skills, goal-setting skills, while also providing participants with public safety classes such as fire safety, K9s in law enforcement, etc.
