Senator McPike launches young leaders program

In preparation for the 2017 Legislative Session, State Senator Jeremy McPike launches the Greater Prince William Young Leaders Program. The program will provide an opportunity for up to six bright high school juniors and seniors who live in the 29th Senate District to travel to Richmond during the General Assembly Session and learn about the legislative process. Students will observe committee hearings and floor debate, meet with top-level policy makers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and tour historic buildings. The 2017 Program dates will be Sunday, January 29 to Tuesday, January 31.

Applicants should demonstrate robust academic performance, strong leadership skills, a diligent work ethic and an interest in their state government. There will be no cost to students to participate in this program, as Senator McPike’s office will provide all of the transportation, meals, activities and sleeping arrangements.
