Latseen Leadership Academy (July 2014)
 
 

(Application) (Flyer)
Application Deadline: May 16, 2014

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 2014, SHI will sponsor two academies in the following communities, and students will be placed at one of the camps according to their proximity to the camp locations:

  • Prince of Wales, July 6-19
  • Angoon, July 19-31

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.
