Leadership Prince William is launching a youth leadership initiative in 2014, and the Micron Technology Foundation has announced a $5,000 matching grant to help establish the new programs.

The Micron Foundation will match donations up to $5,000 to support Leadership Prince William’s youth initiatives, including a middle school mentoring program, a summer youth leadership camp and a youth summit.

“Micron has always supported the mission and vision of Leadership Prince William, and we are thrilled that they will be a founding partner for our youth leadership programs in Greater Prince William,” said Leadership Prince William Executive Director Kathy Bentz. “We believe our youth programming will complement Micron’s commitment to youth education, from STEM to robotics to general education.”

Leadership Prince William is now seeking other community partners—both individuals and corporations—to match Micron Foundation’s generous contribution. Leadership Prince William is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, so the matching grant offers an opportunity for a year-end, tax-deductible contribution to a worthy cause.

The Leadership Prince William Class of 2014 is taking the lead in developing pilot programs for youth development. “The Class of 2014’s motto, ‘Learn. Lead. Succeed.’ has already resonated through the programs they are creating to engage and nurture young leaders. From youth camps to a leadership summit, mentoring programs and a think tank, the Class of 2014 has explored a spectrum of youth programming for our community. Combined with the class members’ own experience and professional expertise, the sky is the limit,’ said Glenn Vickers, Program Manager for Leadership Prince William.

Leadership Prince William engages and connects emerging and established leaders from the government, private and nonprofit sectors.  Its 185 alumni include CEOs, entrepreneurs, elected officials, directors, vice presidents, veterans and dozens of active community leaders who shape the communities of Prince William County, City of Manassas and Manassas Park.
