Suwanee recently announced the names of its sixth Suwanee Youth Leaders (SYL) class. These students were selected based on the strength of their applications, feedback from a student-led selection committee, recommendations from teachers and school administrators, academic performance, and extracurricular resume.
SYL is an eight-month leadership program for high school sophomores and juniors who live within the North Gwinnett, Peachtree Ridge, or Collins Hills cluster districts. Participants learn about local initiatives and community and civic leaders, while also providing feedback to the city from their youth perspective.
Thanks to SYL, said Assistant City Manager Denise Brinson, “We now have a group of young people who have more knowledge of their community and how local government works and the work that goes into building community.”
