YES Leadership Academy

Students in grades 1-12 participate in one-on-one and group training sessions from September through April to learn how to become effective leaders in their communities and to enhance their prospects of going to and graduating from college. In addition to training sessions, students earn volunteer hours through various community service activities, take fieldtrips, and gain hands-on knowledge of fiscal responsibility by planning and executing fundraising projects. The culminating event is an award luncheon in May.
