Youth Leadership Program (YLP) is to provide income eligible, middle, and high school students with the educational opportunities that target individual improvements in academic, behavioral, and social achievement, to aid in the efforts to increase self-sufficiency.

This mission is accomplished through innovative activities in the areas of personal development and character building, leadership skills, educational achievement, career exploration, and civic responsibility.

The Youth Leadership Program's best practices include family participation and broad-based community coordination. This coordination includes community action agencies, public schools, representatives of the public and private sectors, the faith-based community, and key area leaders, and elected officials.
