High-school aged girls are invited to apply for the Young Elites Leadership Summit, which is a free one-week program this June that empowers girls to be strong leaders.

The week, from June 17-21, will feature themes surrounding organization, presentation, debate, health and wellness and goal-setting.

The program takes place at Davidson Day School and has 19 local partners and sponsors.

To apply, girls must send a registration form, letter of recommendation and list of extra-curricular activities by May 31. Acceptance or regret letters will be emailed June 3.

This is the second year of Young Elites (Elite for Excellence, Leadership, Initiative, Tenacity, Execution). Thirty girls attended last year, said organizer Jennifer Shiley, and this year, the program will be capped at 90 participants.
