Latseen Leadership Academy (July 2015)

(Flyer) (Application)

Sealaska Heritage Institute hosts an annual Latseen Leadership Academy. The training is designed to provide engaging culturally-based education and activities for youth in support of their future academic and personal success with a focus on rigor, relevance, and relationships. The goal of the program is to teach students the art of leadership through the development of self knowledge, physical and spiritual strength.  In a supportive learning environment, students will participate in cultural, artistic, athletic and academic activities.

In 2015, SHI will sponsor an academy in Juneau, July 6-19.

The camps are for Sealaska shareholders or shareholder descendants. Full scholarships are available for students invited to attend the academy to cover the cost for tuition, meals, and lodging.
