Every summer we run two fully-funded scholarship courses: Get Out And Lead for students ages 12-14, and Youth Leadership Corps for students ages 15-17. Admission to these courses is highly selective and includes an application, essay, and a letter of recommendation. Open to residents of Maryland, DC, Virginia, and West Virginia.

GET OUT AND LEAD

YOUTH LEADERSHIP CORPS

Get Out And Lead (GOAL) is an Outward Bound scholarship program that has been developed to cultivate budding leaders through the unique challenge of a 8-day wilderness expedition. Students learn the skills that are critical to success and often not learned in the classroom- leadership styles, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and decision making. The ideal GOAL applicant is a 12-14 year old who already shows natural leadership abilities.
