Dale Carnegie Young Adult Leadership Program

The Dale Carnegie Young Adult Leadership Program, open to all Howard County H.S. students (rising 9th to 12th grade), teaches life skills in communication, interpersonal skills, public speaking, stress management, and self-confidence. This is a world renowned program offered at River Hill for the first time.  

YALP is the high school version of the internationally renowned Dale Carnegie Course. Warren Buffett, American business magnate, investor, author and philanthropist, is a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Course…listen to what he has to say:

  • Manage stress more effectively – Great leadership is not born out of good times but when faced with adversity and challenges

  • Build confidence– particularly in public speaking (we build confidence throughout our lives – no matter how confident we are right now, we can always stretch and grow)

  • Refine social skills– even those out are already outgoing can enhance their communication and listening skills

  • Sharpen interpersonal and leadership skills

  • Strengthen advocacy & communication skills– it’s not just what we say but ‘how’ we say it…

  • Prepare for college interviews

  • Eligible for 2 college credits
