The Summer Leadership Program (SLP), started in 1995, provides Boston-area teenagers with a powerful and diverse summer of community building, self discovery, leadership skills, action projects, and challenging seminars to transform themselves into powerful voices for change.

The Summer Leadership Program works with high school aged students from Boston’s diverse neighborhoods, surrounding communities, and outlying suburbs. Participating youth come from high schools including City on a Hill, Needham High, Boston Latin Academy, Concord Carlisle High, Beaver Country Day School, South Shore Christian Academy, Trinity Academy, South Boston High, English High, Newman Prep, Brighton High, Boston Arts Academy, the Winsor School, and many others.

Once accepted into the Summer Leadership Program, students participate in a three-day, two-night retreat in order to explore common bonds and build a sense of community. Then we launch into six and a half weeks of intensive seminar learning, service work, and community action projects.

The 2017 Summer Leadership Program will kick off with a 3 day, 2 night retreat from June 27th through June 29th. The regular program will run from July 3rd through August 11th.
