USMC Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy at Quantico VA (SLCDA) July 21-27th of 2013.
There are kids out there who are starved and I don’t mean in the pit of their stomachs (there are many of those sadly) but kids who crave to be the best. They desire to aspire above what the average teenager shoots for and are rough diamonds being chipped away daily with little doses of polish applied.
Those are the kids who apply for these Leadership programs across the nation. They may not fully realize how this is setting them up for success down the road until years later, but they see opportunities and go for it now!
The United States Marine Corps is sponsoring a week long Leadership and Character Development Academy on MCB Quantico. The considerable time and dedication put forth on this project is evident in the success of the test program. The Commandant of the Marine Corps (General Amos) and the Director of Marine Corps Staff (LtGen Williams) our Commanding General (MajGen Osterman) are huge supporters of the program and recognize the value it provides to our youth.
The 96 kids across our nation who are awarded a slot to this program will be exposed over the course of a week to many Leadership and Ethics scenario’s that all tie in to one another. Daily guest speakers on top of college prep courses will surpass our goal to provide training they can take back to their schools. With new tools in their “Tool Bag” to help make them better citizens of our community, their families and peers.
If this will help feed your starving ambitious child, then I look forward to seeing their application. You can download more information and the application here http://www.mcrc.marines.mil/unithome/slcda.aspx
