The Youth Leadership New Braunfels class of 2022 has been selected, with 34 students making the roster. The program will begin on Tuesday, August 31 with an orientation for the students and their parents, followed by a day-long leadership and team building retreat on Saturday, September 11.

The 2022 class marks the 25th group of high school sophomores and juniors to go through the program, which has graduated nearly 700 young leaders since its inception in 1997. The roster includes students from Canyon High School, Davenport High School, John Paul II, Memorial Early College High School and New Braunfels High School.

The purpose of the Youth Leadership New Braunfels program is to train students in leadership techniques and community awareness, so they become familiar with current issues, community resources, opportunities and other factors influencing the direction of their community’s future. The class will meet monthly beginning in October, for seven school-day sessions covering topics such as leadership skills, tourism, history, arts, government, the justice system, health care, business and economic development, and education.
