Youth Leadership St. Lucie

The Roundtable of St. Lucie County is excited to share that we are currently recruiting new participants for Youth Leadership St. Lucie 2018-2019. 
 
Youth Leadership St. Lucie (YLSL) is comprised of St. Lucie County high school students with a minimum 2.5 GPA who are passionate about issues in their community, and would like to be a catalyst for change in the world they live in. 
 
Our young leaders are prepared to take on projects and participate in activities that will support their desire to expand their skillsets as leaders, including gaining confidence in public speaking, advocacy, lobbying and rallying. 
 
Operating under the premise "youth-led, adult-guided", YLSL provides teens a forum in which to discuss and creatively address issues they have identified in the community.  As the youth develop strategies to express their views and advocate for change, they are accompanied by adult advisors and community leaders who support and guide them with their expertise.
 
If you or a high school student you know would like to join this incredible team of young leaders, please complete the 2018-2019 Youth Leadership St. Lucie Application below and contact either of the youth advisors for submission instructions and/or additional information.

"I wanted to personally let you know how much of an impact these leadership courses have on the youth of St. Lucie County.  For example, my brother, Nicolas has always volunteered, but after taking the two leadership courses, he pushed himself to get more involved in the community. As a result, he is now a member of the Youth Advocacy Board of Students Working Against Tobacco, where he represents St. Lucie and twelve other counties at a statewide level.  I have also been impacted by the leadership courses you and the Roundtable offer. Thanks to the course I took during the fall semester, I have realized that I have more potential, and as a result, I am now a member of the Leadership Council of Students Working Against Tobacco, and am also the president of the St. Lucie SWAT chapter held by the Health Department.  That being said, I would like to thank you once again for opening me and the youth up to these opportunities to exhibit our full potential." -- Sebastian Suarez
