In partnership with Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), PRO Youth & Families is launching the Youth Leadership Academy for high school juniors and seniors. The Youth Leadership Academy is an opportunity for students from across SACOG’s six counties (Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba, Placer, and El Dorado) to weigh in on policies surrounding transportation, land use, affordable housing, and environmental impacts of development. Participants in the program will participate in monthly training including civic engagement and professional development activities, as well as interact with SACOG’s board members who hold elected offices across the region.
This program bridges the gap between youth and local leaders.
No Stipend is offered at the moment.
