Youth Leadership Academy
The California PAL Youth Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity for PAL Youth Leadership Council officers and directors to gain hands-on experience in leadership and character development.
As one of California PAL's most important educational programs, the benefits of attending the Youth Leadership Academy is that PAL youth will be challenged and empowered to rise to a new level of participation in their various PAL programs as well as their communities and schools. The leadership knowledge that the kids gain by participating in the Youth Leadership Council (YLC) program enables them to have the confidence to make a difference with their peers and in the community. These PAL kids influence others to get involved and through this effort, juvenile crime and gang involvement in the local communities is diminished.
