Over the course of six weeks, the APALI Summer Youth Leadership Academy students learned about civic involvement, community, and leadership through workshops, guest speakers, community tours, and civic learning projects. Our students developed genuine connections and new friendships with each other as they delved deeper into an understanding of underprivileged communities and communities of Color. This marks only the beginning of a lifelong learning process and commitment to civic involvement and awareness for our APALI students.
