Summer Youth Institute

Cabrillo Youth Summer Institute

The Cabrillo Youth Summer Institute (CYSI) is back with some exciting changes and new programs! CYSI gives students the opportunity to begin their journey to college & careers. Students will explore a chosen "career path" through both classroom and hands-on activities.

Students will be guided to identify, discover, and explore specific career areas. A key contributor to future academic success is early exposure to career awareness. We will introduce students to the college and career opportunities that exist and prepare them to make decisions about high school and college coursework and, ultimately, their future.

youth programThe Leadership Challenge (ages 12-17)

It’s never too early to start to develop as a leader!

As a teen in today’s world, you can make a difference. Taking initiative and leading the way will help you make a positive difference for your friends, your peers, your family, your community and even the world.

You can also get a head start on preparing yourself for college and for the workforce by developing your leadership skills! Research shows that:

  • College admissions officers rate Leadership as one of the most important qualities they consider. Building your leadership skills gives you an advantage! - The Atlantic, 1/22/14
  • 95% of employers think leadership development should begin by age 21. So why not start now? - CCL, 2012 Leadership Insights Survey

In this dynamic, experientially based, week-long program, teens will discover and liberate their inner leaders using The Leadership Challenge®, a world-class leadership development program.

Our program is designed for youth entering the 7th-12th grades. Groups will be separated into those entering 7th-9th and 10th-12th to focus on their specific leadership abilities.

The Leadership Challenge® is an evidence-based program that has been tested, validated and used globally for more than 25 years. The Leadership Challenge® provides a framework for leadership known as the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. Students who learn about these five practices report increased confidence in standing up for what they believe and in their own ability to make a difference. During our five days together, we will explore each of the Five Practices.

  • Model the Way: On day one, teens will clarify their personal values and find their voices as leaders. They will also work on aligning their actions with their values and explore various values in action through a reflective exercise.
  • Inspire a Shared Vision: Teens will envision an exciting and ennobling future and learn how to enlist others to turn possibilities into realities.
  • Challenge the Process: On day 3, teens will practice experimenting and innovating using experiential games and activities. They will also reflect on their experiences and practice reframing mistakes as learning opportunities.
  • Enabling Others To Act: On day 4, teens will build skills for trusting and being trusted as they foster collaboration working in teams to achieve shared goals.
  • Encouraging the Heart: On this final day, teens will recognize one another, show appreciation and celebrate shared values and victories. Each teen will make a commitment to continue developing as a leader as they graduate from this transformational program.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to launch your leadership journey!

The enrollment deadline for this program is Friday, July 13th.
