Youth Leadership Council

Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is a year-long program in which students develop their own individual and unique voices as they cultivate project management and leadership skills. Young people ages 11-18 years old work together to turn a passion for dance into community activism and change by creating their own activities and events to engage peers and their community.
