2018 YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM SESSION 20 T his year we welcomed sixty (60) students to the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA from June 21-29, 2018. Similar to the FBI National Academy Program , students came from all over the United States, representing the 44 North American Chapters, one from the European Chapter, one from the Latin America/Caribbean Chapter, one respectively from FBI LEEDA, FBI Society of Former Agents and the FBI National Academy Associates Executive Board selection process. The week focused on core subject matter which included Leadership, Ethics, Values and Choices, Juvenile Crime, Character Matters, Goal Setting, Bullying, Ethical Decision Making, Accountability, Social Media and Financial Responsibility. The first Youth Leadership Program took place in 1998 and as of this year, over 900 students have graduated from the program. YLP Session #20 brought some significant changes and some im- provements to an already great program. This year the group took ad- vantage of the beautiful and historic local surroundings by including a battlefield walk to learn about the revolutionary war and leadership

lessons learned during that time at the Yorktown Battlefield. The group took a trip to the Marine Museum and learned about the importance of teamwork and the integrity that is essential of leaders who want to make a difference in the world. A trip to Washington DC included a guided tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Ar- lington national cemetery, and of course all the major memorials and monuments. Learning about our past helps us to make better decisions about our future. This year‘s group of exceptional young leaders proves to us once again that leadership knows no age. We thank our Youth Leadership Counselors who continue to show their dedication and share their talents with these young leaders of tomorrow. The 2018 YLP Counselors are Kelli Bailiff , Amy Bon- ney , Lene Bowers , William Gardiner , Tom Krsnich , Mike Dieppa , Leeannedra Marchese and James Rooney . We also thank the FBINAA Chapters and YLP sponsors Justice Federal Credit Union and Cody Systems for their support of this program.
