Young Leaders

This program builds job and leadership skills in youth ages 11-15, through a program that combines creative work in the community, life skill workshops, career day visits to professionals in a variety of fields and group projects. Youth progress through a series of steps to build work skills, while practicing leadership in the community. They receive stipends for their participation.


Projects that youth have worked on in the past include: painting murals on garages hit by graffiti, planting pollinator-attracting gardens, developing recycling programs and surveying neighbors.
