Carthage, N.C.  Moore County Government Leadership Academy is a program that places High School and College students in internships throughout county government.  The Leadership Academy is an initiative sponsored by Moore County Administration and Moore County 4-H.

Since its inception in 2010, the program has continued to improve and become very popular in the Moore County community, and as such this year only 10 select applicants will participate in the improved and intense program.  The program gives students ages 14-21 a unique learning experience by allowing them to participate in on-the-job training with Moore County Government agencies.  Participants will be assigned to county departments based on their career interests.  The Leadership Academy will allow participants to gain insight into the workplace by participating in simulations and hands-on activities that provide an up-close and personal perspective of a government employee, school board member, sheriff, commissioner, representative, etc.  Through participation, youth will gain leadership skills while also understanding the affects and impacts our government and citizens have within our community.  Civic tours will include county, city, and possibly state government agencies.
