SAN FERNANDO VALLEY—Councilmember Krekorian announced the launch of his new civic engagement program for high school students interested in local government, the San Fernando Valley Youth Leadership Academy. The seven-week course is a summer leadership development program for high school students that will train and cultivate the next generation of young leaders in our community.
During the course, students will learn about the role of city government and participate in fun, practical projects that directly impact the San Fernando Valley on issues such as youth education and empowerment, homelessness and social services, sustainability and environmental protection, emergency response and preparedness, city planning and more. They will get an up-close look at a career in public service.
The youth leadership academy is open to all high school students who live in the portions of the San Fernando Valley in the City of Los Angeles. If you are thoughtful, responsible and inquisitive about the functions and purpose of our city government, the youth leadership academy is for you.
