Youth Leadership Academy goes virtual
Adapting to a new format

April 23: Adaptability is the name of the game for the world right now, and the Youth Leadership Academy has had to do exactly that. Due to the impacts of Covid-19, SACOG and Pro Youth & Families have followed local and state orders and began working from home and cancelled all in-person sessions for the program. However, the YLA will continue virtually and will still be a place for students from across the region to connect with each other and learn about different regional and local topics that impact their communities.
