Like other MOWW YLCs, the Huntsville
YLC has a curriculum dedicated to leadership, American heritage and
patriotism and the free enterprise system.
This YLC is held at the US Space and Rocket Center’s Space Camp and
incorporates most of a 1-day Space Camp “Introduction to Flight” Program as
part of the YLC leadership and training experience for students.
The YLC is a blend of tutorials and presentations by subject matter experts
followed by team workshops related to the YLC focus and more team activity at
team level and at YLC level.
Participants help develop their team with team building exercises and
working together, work to solutions, present results, and compete against
other teams in those efforts as well as the final team project. In addition to hearing and interacting with
speakers and staff, YLC participants gain more insight into experience beyond
high school through an extensive question and answer (Q&A) panel session
with civic, medical, entrepreneurial, industrial, sales, educational, and
military leaders and practitioners. In
a court case presided over by an incumbent Circuit Court judge, YLC students
serve as prosecution, defense and jurists and render a verdict. Amid all this
activity, participants also experience the Space Camp Aviation Challenge
“Introduction to Flight” Program, which includes an orientation to flight,
hands-on flying F/A-18 and T-38 jet simulators, and team exercises at
Leadership Reaction Course.
