Neighborhood Council leaders have just one week left to identify civic-minded youth and to nominate them for the Civic Youth Leadership Academy, a free six-session program with a mission to empower the next generation of civic leaders.
Space is limited–don’t miss out on a great opportunity to partner with active youth and to create lasting change within the community.
Civic Youth will attend six Saturday sessions, each focusing on a different topic, including community building, public speaking, effective communication, understanding of local government, and practical ways to contribute to your Neighborhood Council. The CYLA is a partnership between the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA).
Applicants who are actively engaged with their Neighborhood Council, including those who have recently or are currently running for a Board position, will be given first preference. (Important Dates: June 3rd application deadline, June 15th Decision Notification, June 25th First Session, September 24th Final session.)
