YLSS provides selected high school students with experiential learning opportunities to help develop their leadership skills and learn more about their community. 

Students accepted into the 2021 Class were invited to  remain and join the Class of 2022.  If we have openings, applications to join the 2022 Class will be posted this Spring. Thanks for understanding. 

How do I become a member of YLSS? How much time does it take? When will YLSS meet? Is there an attendance policy? What is the cost to participate?

  In YLSS you can:

  •  Explore Sandy Springs and learn how to be civically engaged
  •  Network with a group of diverse students from high schools across the city
  •  Discover what it takes to build a thriving community by speaking with business, human services and civic leaders
  • Learn the skills that will allow you to reach your leadership potential

The focus of YLSS is not the one year you are in the program, rather it is what you do in the years that follow. We have the responsibility to use what we learned to make a difference.
