Lone Star Leadership Academy programs are Monday-Friday experiential learning leadership development programs offered several times each summer in the Dallas/Fort Worth (5th/6th graders), Austin (6th/7th graders) and Houston/Galveston (7th/8th graders) areas. Participants experience curriculum taught in Texas classrooms through visits to historically, politically, scientifically and environmentally significant sites including the Fort Worth Stockyards, Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (Dallas/Fort Worth program); offices of state legislators at the Texas Capitol, The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and a Cowboy Cookout (Austin program); and NASA, an educational boat ride on the Houston Ship Channel and Moody Gardens (Houston/Galveston program) and much more. Texas teachers facilitate programs including leadership groups where students participate in simulations and leadership activities. In addition, career speakers introduce participants to a wide variety of unique career opportunities. Program alumni are invited to join Education in Action's Lone Star Youth Leadership Council. In order to qualify for the program, students must maintain an 85 or higher average and receive an educator recommendation based on demonstrated leadership ability.
