Greater Tucson Youth Leadership Program
The Greater Tucson Youth Leadership Program (GTYLP) prepares and mobilizes new leaders. This program is open to high school youth entering 9th through 12th grade. In the program, youth develop leadership skills, confidence and the knowledge needed to make positive changes within the community. Youth will learn leadership skills through hands-on activities and by creating their own service object. Youth will get a sense of community involvement through interaction with local community leaders.
We are currently recruiting the Class of 2012 for the Summer Leadership Institute!
The Youth Leadership Institute is a two-week summer program based upon Greater Tucson Leadership’s issue-day model. Each day youth participants will be exposed to important issues facing our community through exploratory trips and discussions with high-level leaders. Youth will leave with a greater interest in civic engagement, confidence in their leadership abilities, knowledge about the issues that are important to them, and a personal leadership plan. Youth must commit to both weeks and attend all sessions.
