The Sorensen Institute is thrilled to announce the participants in our 2020 High School Leaders Program. These students will meet via Zoom for three weeks, navigating the same challenges our current elected leaders are facing. The students will find themselves immersed in ethics, bipartisanship, and Virginia politics, policy, and governance.
The HSLP is designed to help students build the knowledge and skills they need to step forward as leaders in their communities. We are excited to spend the summer with these excellent students!
