Police Department Inaugural Teen Academy

We are excited to announce our First Annual Teen Leadership Academy. The mission of the Leadership Academy is to provide a well-rounded foundation of education for future leaders of Laguna Beach. Through a variety of classes, interaction and guest speakers, students will become introduced to fundamental leadership principles designed to enable them to become effective teenage leaders and eventual adult leaders in their communities. 

This is not a class for students to learn how to become police officers, although there is an opportunity to learn about some law enforcement topics. They do, however, get to learn about community involvement through beach clean-up, volunteering at the OC Food Bank, listening to lectures from experts in the field of leadership as well as ways to handle peer pressure.

We are accepting applications until July 24th. The Teen Leadership Academy will be help Monday, August 5th through Saturday, August 10th, with Saturday being a Commencement Ceremony. The daily schedule will be demanding and on average will be approximately 8 hours long. This is a FREE, week-long leadership class for students who will be attending high school in the Fall.

We are looking for teens who are interested in making a difference in their community. Hurry and apply today, as applications are due on July 24th!
