Idaho State Police Will Begin Accepting Applications for the 2nd Annual ISP Leadership Education and Development Academy

Starting today, the Idaho State Police will begin accepting applications for the 2nd Annual ISP Leadership Education and Development Academy (ILEAD). The week long course, scheduled June 7th through 12th 2020, includes both classroom study and outside activities designed to help Idaho Youth develop and utilize the tools they need for further success.
ISP Major Bill Gardiner developed and implemented the program that provides youth with a foundation for success. "The Idaho State Police believes investing in Idaho's youth will benefit all of Idaho as well as the Idaho State Police. The students who complete the ILEAD Academy have the capacity to become future ISP troopers, educators, even a future governor. Time spent now, building a solid foundation of skills will help them grow into future leaders throughout our state"' Gardiner said of the program.
The ILEAD Academy is held on the ISP Headquarter campus in Meridian and is open to students ages 15-17. This intensive leadership development course provides students an opportunity to interact and learn from mentors from the Idaho State Police Advanced Training Academy. There is no cost to attend. Academy objectives include:
Providing leadership principles and skills necessary for success
Developing an appreciation for diversity
Providing insight to various careers in government and public service
Developing an understanding of the value of community service
Providing education designed to help youth avoid common challenges including underage use of alcohol and other controlled substances
ISP believes it takes education and training to help today's youth become tomorrow's leaders, explained Major Gardiner. "I have seen how this program can be the beginning of the path students take to toward success in a variety of fields. It helps them develop goals and skills that carry them forward into adulthood. I'm proud the Idaho State Police is working to help provide this experience for youth and I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it."
Students interested in attending should complete and submit an ILEAD Academy application available on ISP's website. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early. The number of students accepted into the program is limited. The final date to apply is April 1st 2020. For more information go to: www.isp.idaho.gov
