YLA leadership development projects
What’s your plan?
Throughout the yearlong Youth Leadership Academy, you will design, create and implement a project during the 2023-2024 academic year on the social justice issue of your choice. You will meet with an assigned mentor on a monthly basis, attend skill-building webinars , access seed funding to launch your project and have opportunities to connect and engage with Plan’s global youth network and partners.
This is a perfect opportunity to expand your skills while preparing for college and beyond. Leadership projects have often been used for high school capstone projects or service-learning credit.
