Youth Leadership Program

Each year, the City of Port Orange welcomes a small group of students to complete the City's Youth Leadership Program. The program is open to high school juniors and seniors in Volusia County. The goals of the program are to educate students on the basics of local government, provide opportunities for leadership experiences, and engage in the community through a service project. 

2020 - 2021 Program Year

Port Orange University: Program participants will attend all classes of the Port Orange University, the citizen academy that visits each City department to learn about their roles and responsibilities. For more information about Port Orange University click here.
