    What Is Youth Leadership?

    The Chamber Foundation offers a two-year leadership, personal, and workforce development program for 11th and 12th grade students with the goal of developing young leaders and showcasing the countless gems in Superior-Douglas County.  This Program has, for the past seventeen years, attracted over 600 students from all the high schools in Douglas County; Superior, Northwestern, Solon Springs, and Maranatha Academy.  The Youth Leadership Program has been put on hold indefinitely as of July 2021.

    Below is a sample schedule for this program:

    Universal Orlando™ Youth Programs

    Students will go beyond the basics and reimagine the classroom at Universal Orlando Resort™.  They’ll explore  professional and academic interests with programs that meet National and State Standards. This collection of education programs  are offered in the authentic, immersive classroom of Universal Orlando’s theme parks.


    Junior Year Curriculum:

    The Junior year is designed to help you break out of your shell, learn about Douglas County, and explore new experiences you can’t do elsewhere. Throughout the year, you will learn more about yourself as a person, start figuring out your leadership style, and learn more about the community you live in.
