S.H.O.U.T Application

Thank you for your interest in the S.H.O.U.T. Youth Leadership program.  Below is a digital form copy of the program application.  Please read the following information before completing the form.

Thank you.

Mission Statement

To develop, in an interactive environment, the leadership skills and community awareness of selected high school students.  Since 1989, the program has developed young leaders and exposed them to the various elements which help form a strong, dynamic community.


Summer S.H.O.U.T.!® will be held one full week in June. We will meet 8:30 a.m. until approximately 4:00 p.m. each day except for Friday when a graduation will be held around lunchtime.

We will also do another summer session in July from 1:00 p.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m. followed by graduation on the last day at approximately 6:00 p.m.

You will choose which week works best with your schedule. Additional activities outside of the times above will be communicated prior to the class.

Program Days

Each day will consist of developing leadership skills and community awareness through interactive programs, speakers and other activities while having fun and making new friends.
