Enrollment is open for the annual Rising Stars Youth Leadership Academy. The deadline to enroll is May 25 for the summer program, which runs June 12-Aug. 14.

Rising Stars provides youth ages 13-18 with exposure to area businesses, agencies and civic groups to provide them with a positive perspective on what their future can hold.

The program is meant to increase educational competence, physical and social development, and increase life skills. The program also exposes participants to a variety of professional fields, to help further their interests and provide them with guidance on how to succeed at those jobs.
