Second Military Leadership Academy of Summer Held in Ft. Indiantown Gap July 8-21
INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. – June 29, 2012 – Freedom Alliance Military Leadership Academy (MLA) will hold graduation for its first class of the summer on June 30. The MLA is a national youth leadership development program which equips America’s youth to become leaders in their community. High school students from around the country have an opportunity to examine military lifestyle and culture while gaining valuable leadership experience.
The first class, held June 17-30, included more than 30 young men and women across the country. The second course of the summer will be held July 8-21 at Ft. Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania.
“Freedom Alliance not only equips the students with pertinent military training, but also with useful every day skills. We hope to give them the tools to make well-informed decisions in personal, academic and professional lives,” said Freedom Alliance Executive Director Calvin Coolidge.
Not only do the cadets participate in military activities such as a Leadership Reaction Course, the Army Confidence Course and Field Training Exercises, but they also make meaningful contributions through projects for the community and our service members. The first MLA class of the summer prepared care packages for former MLA instructors who are deployed in Afghanistan.
Since 2001, the Freedom Alliance Military Leadership Academy has been dedicated to transforming young men and women into well-rounded leaders. Many graduates, among other accomplishments, have gone on to serve as officers or enlisted personnel or enroll in an ROTC program.
