Youth_Leadership_Academy_For_Girls.jpgStudents from the Fulton County Youth Leadership Academy for Girls visit the Board of Commissioners meeting on March 16, 2011. The group of 22 future leaders used the opportunity to display their confidence and public speaking skills. The academy immerses third grade female students in a rigorous, structured program that cultivates social skills, encourages economic literacy and sparks their entrepreneurial drives. The program exposes young girls to accomplished local businesswomen and civic leaders in addition to a variety of civic engagement activities, site visits and field experiences.
