Youth Leadership Sandy Springs is a unique opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors who are interested in developing leadership skills, investigating the issues facing Sandy Springs and discovering opportunities for service.
Applications for the 2016-17 class will be available in January 2016.
In YLSS, students explore Sandy Springs, looking at its government, environment, social service agencies, public safety and economic development. Classes meet at city hall, on the Chattahoochee River, behind the scenes at the police department, in jail, courtrooms and inside historic homes. Students work with business, civic and government leaders to understand what shapes our community.
From what they learn about Sandy Springs and its needs, class members will create a group service project in the spring.
