Dogwood Tutoring is an active supporter of Youth Leadership Sandy Springs. Many of our students have benefitted from YLSS in the past eight years. This outstanding program offers a unique blend of out-of-the classroom learning experiences and leadership training. Students travel around Sandy Springs to learn about various aspects of the community. They see how local government works, meet with a Fulton County judge to learn about the criminal justice system, visit entrepreneurs and business executives to understand possible career choices, and build communication and leadership skills through workshops and group activities.
YLSS is looking for students for the Class of 2020. They should be in 9th or 10th grade now and live or attend school in Sandy Springs. The deadline to apply is March 16, and applications can be found at the YLSS website. For more information, contact director Linda Cahn at YLSSDirector@leadershipsandysprings.org. Or contact Ivan, a YLSS volunteer for several years.
