BCYC Leadership
Political Leadership Track

The United States Capitol Building

  • June 12-17, 2022

Are you interested in politics? During this time of political fragmentation and skepticism about the founding ideals and documents of our country, America needs the contributions of its Catholic citizens more than ever. If you have an interest in politics and America’s founding principles, the Political Leadership program for high school students is for you. Participants will deepen their understanding of America’s founding principles, strengthen their ability to defend those principles, and explore the relationship between the truths of the Catholic faith and American political principles.
