2018 Young Women Leadership Program

The program provides young women currently enrolled in middle school and high school with the opportunity to meet and interact with women who hold leadership roles in government, business, medicine, media relations, and other professions.

Through this unique nonpartisan program, participants will hear from special guests as they share insight, advice, and stories of personal achievement. They will also engage with their peers and our special guests in candid, roundtable discussions. Participants will also learn to identify their strengths, practice effective communication with others, and develop their leadership abilities. The hope is to inspire these young women to set ambitious educational and career goals.  This summer program will include periodic events held throughout the 10th Congressional District and at the U.S. Capitol.


Congresswoman Comstock’s office will review and consider applications from young women currently enrolled in middle school or high school (public, private, or home school). Please note that priority placement will be given to applicants who reside or attend school in the 10th District.

Time Commitment

We ask that participants attend a majority of the programs offered to fully benefit from this program.  This program will begin in June 2018 and will continue through the end of August 2018, meeting about every two weeks throughout Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. The kick-off will be at the U.S. Capitol in June. Last year we hosted the students at the Kennedy Center, as well as the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency located in Springfield, Virginia. No student will be penalized for missing program sessions. We understand that with parents busy schedules, summer vacations and other extracurricular activities, students may not be able to make every session.

Students may apply online at www.comstock.house.gov. For more information, please contact Kasha Nielsen at Kasha.Nielsen@mail.house.gov.

TV Camps overview:  There are two versions to choose from.  An indoor television studio production camp or a field production documentary-style camp.  As part of each TV 101 Camp, students will learn about the equipment and the wide variety of crew positions needed to create a successful television project. The first week generally consists of learning the use of the equipment and crew positions; while in week 2 the students work together to create a 30 minute program.  Our instructor will guide the students through all the phases and explain the importance of proper planning and preparation.
