Another school year will begin in the next couple of months and so will a new batch of participants in the Los Alamos Youth Leadership program.
Sponsored through the Family YMCA and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, the year-long program consists of several different projects each year where high school students can participate in activities around and for the community.
The First Step Orientation will take place on Aug. 3-4, which will be an overnight camping event at Camp Shaver. Sean Hall will lead the team building session the first day. The following day will be a physical challenge for the students to break out of their comfort zones.
Throughout the year, different projects are presented with several high school students serving as team leaders.
Every year kicks off with a fundraiser car wash and bake sale. The event, which happens in September, is the starting point for raising funds toward projects for the rest of the year. “It was a success,” Co-leader, 18-year-old Janali Gustafson said. She organized the Frito pies which were a sellout.
Co-leader McKenna Schoonover, also 18, agreed it was a success. “People were happy we were doing this for the community, many just donated without getting their cars washed,” she said.
