The Teen Leadership Academy is designed to provide our young adults opportunities to gain real life and work experience through civic engagement. Junior high & high school age youth are given an opportunity to perform community service while learning the principles of project management, work ethic, leadership, team work, and character building. These programs are valuable and approved for volunteer service hours by the FUSD and other local public and private schools. Please discuss the programs with your school’s volunteer service coordinator for final approval. Students will receive 20-35 service hours per week!
