Summer Nexus is a competitive program of 20 students from diverse backgrounds dedicated to becoming leaders. Now in its eighth year, Summer Nexus assembles motivated and energetic high school students from public and private schools for a crash course in leadership development.

Participants can:

  • Break out of their usual routine
  • Learn about themselves with new friends who will broaden their horizons
  • Gain new skills that will help them at home, at school and in job hunting
  • Have new experiences that will expand their resume for job applications
  • Challenge themselves mentally, physically and socially
  • Meet community leaders who model the way and are dedicated to making this region the best it can be
  • Grow and achieve their potential at school, in clubs, at sports and at home

Summer Nexus Session 1 runs from July 16-22 and Session 2 runs from August 6-12.

The program begins at 3:00 p.m. on the first day of each session with an orientation and overnight retreat designed to build relationships and allow participants to step out of their comfort zone. Students will meet from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on each of the following days of the session. The program consists of a morning workshop, lunch with a community leader, afternoon leadership activity, and planning a community service project. Participants will engage in workshops that enhance skills in: public speaking, diversity awareness, conflict resolution, decision making, personal finance, and college preparation. On the last day of each session, students will implement the community service project and then attend a graduation picnic with invited family and friends.
