The 2017 class marks the 20th group of high school sophomores and juniors to go through the program, which has graduated more than 575 students. The roster includes one home school student, 11 students from Canyon High School, two students from St. John Paul II Catholic High School, two students from New Braunfels Christian Academy and 19 students from 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.

The program is open to 10th and 11th grade students who have at least a “B” average at New Braunfels High School, Canyon High School or a private high school within the NBISD or CISD attendance zones. More than 80 applications were submitted to the Selection Committee. All identifying information was redacted so that the applications were scored on an anonymous basis. The committee’s goal is to select a distinguished group of students who demonstrate leadership potential and are motivated, creative and interested in developing leadership skills and a sense of community.
