Now in its sixth year, the Suwanee Youth Leaders (SYL) program is accepting applications for its nine-month leadership program for high school sophomores and juniors. SYL is open to students who live in the North Gwinnett, Peachtree Ridge, and Collins Hill clusters, as well as home school and private school students who reside within those clusters. The program centers on civic involvement, leadership skills, and volunteer opportunities.
The 2019 SYL program kicks off with a mandatory two-day retreat in the spring. Students then meet one Saturday each month March through Oct. and are expected to volunteer at several community events which may include the August Concert, two Food Truck Friday events, Suwanee Fest, and Arts in the Park.
Applications at www.suwanee.com are due by Dec. 1. Information: Adam Edge at email@example.com or Denise Brinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
