  • I am proud tobe co-advisor with Mr. Lesh of the Alamance Youth Leadership Academy. The Alamance Youth Leadership Academy (AYLA) is a two-year program committed to building strong foundations for future leaders. Founding members identified middle school as a time of critical personal development and an opportunity to engage area seventh and eighth graders in leadership and service. Students are selected to participate through an application process. Thanks to our program partners, this opportunity is offered to students at no cost.

    Throughout the program, students will gain:

    • The ability to identify, develop and exercise leadership skills
    • The ability to work in teams
    • The confidence and ability to speak well in public
    • Problem-solving skills
    • Communication skills
    • Organization and facilitation skills
    • Motivational skills
    • Relationships with students from other schools
