Youth Leadership Academies



The Norfolk County Sheriff's Youth Leadership Academies are designed to help youths age 10-to-14 develop the crucial skills needed in the modern world. Using experiential and adventure education, participants in the academy learn to overcome challenges and reflect on what they learned and the skills they needed to be successful. This helps young participants set goals and come up with strategies on how to achieve these goals.
