Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (VA-10) will be continuing the 10th Congressional District Young Women Leadership Program this year. The 10th Congressional District Young Women Leadership Program provides young women currently enrolled in middle school and high school with the opportunity to meet and interact with women who hold leadership roles and have built successful careers in government, business, medicine, media relations, and other professions.
Through this unique, bipartisan program participants can engage with their peers and special guests in candid, roundtable discussions while sharing insights, advice, and stories. Participants will also learn about career opportunities in various fields, the legislative process, develop their leadership skills, identify their strengths, and practice effective communication with others to inspire their educational and career goals.
A special guest or a panel of special guests will be invited to participate in each program. The program is scheduled to begin in June and will continue through the end of August. There will be periodic events, about two to four a month, throughout the 10th Congressional District and at the U.S. Capitol.
Congresswoman Barbara Comstock's office will review and consider applications from young women who are currently enrolled in middle school or high school (public, private or home schooled). Priority placement will be given to applicants who reside or attend school in the 10th District. Applicants will be selected on the quality of the application, their willingness to commit to this program, as well as their desire to build their own young professional network.
