The Prince William County Human Rights Commission is looking for high school students who are interested in civics and government to serve on its Student Leadership Council. Sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in public, private and homeschools in Prince William County are eligible to apply for the leadership council starting Friday, September 15.


The student council will meet once a month for five months each year at the Kelly Leadership Center. During the five sessions, members will pick human rights issues that are of interest to them. The council members will work to put together a media campaign on the issue and present it to one another. They will also present to a subcommittee of the Human Rights Commission consisting of commission members and county human rights staff.

During several of the sessions, the students will hear from speakers representing local, state and federal government to learn a bit about how government operates at all levels. The speakers, in conjunction with the project the students work on, will hopefully foster an interest in government service.

Questions about the student council can be directed to the Human Rights Office at 703-792-4680 or email

We hope students will consider applying and get started on a fun look at government.
