The freedom of summer can quickly lead to boredom for teenagers, so we have compiled information below about lots of fun, engaging opportunities for youth – many of them happening here at City High School and some happening at various organizations around the community…

Greater Tucson Youth Leadership Program: City High School is also hosting the Youth Leadership Institute this summer. This is a two-week summer program led by Volunteer Southern Arizona and based upon Greater Tucson Leadership’s “issue day” model. Each day youth participants will be exposed to important issues facing our community through exploratory trips and discussions with high-level leaders. Youth will leave with a greater interest in civic engagement, confidence in their leadership abilities, knowledge about the issues that are important to them, and a personal leadership plan. Youth must commit to both weeks and attend all sessions. The fee for the program is $300, which will be waived for 3-5 City High School students. Click here for more information and to register.
