Summer Leadership Programs for Youth Ages 12 to 18

Due to the global impact of COVID-19, the Powerful Youth team has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all 2020 Global Leadership Academies in both Canada and England. This is very disappointing, but we are already shifting energies to make NEXT SUMMER’s international leadership programs for youth bigger and better than ever! We will be releasing 2021 program dates shortly, and hope to see you then! In the meantime, stay safe and keep up-to-date with everything Powerful Youth by following us on Facebook or Instagram.
