How a Mission Makes a Nation Stronger

Youth Leadership Authority (YLA) is a proactive- boutique, non-profit 501 c3 that promotes family values through a variety of youth leadership and developmental programs.  As what we always say, we are not a one and done program.

We set teens on a path to leadership with several programs, that results in their ability and confidence to move forward into college and/or a career with the military, police, or fire.

Our seventeen years of historical stats speak for themselves: 82% of our teens go to college, 41% go into one of the military branches, fire, police, EMT, etc. We also provide career choice opportunities with community leaders, internships, and mentoring. We are a highly impactful small organization with a seventeen-year history, that has proven record of results.

Core Values:  Honesty, Respect, Peace, Kindness and Humility.

Our Programs are built on the core values above, which help to build a teens character with morals and values, tact, patriotism, and manners that create strong family values and career goals.

YLA’s Mission: To provide a HUB of building-block opportunities for today’s youth, families, and educators by offering a variety of leadership development programs that are built on Honesty, Respect, Peace, Kindness and Humility.

YLA is building America’s future leaders; with patriotism and integrity to secure their future!

Our goal is to inspire Inspiring Focused, Driven Leaders.  We set kids on a one – four year path (sometimes longer) of personal, professional, spiritual and physical development programs; that result with them recognizing and understanding the importance of family values, solid personal and spiritual principals, patriotism, honesty and career choices.

Our Programs are filled with the WHOLE-PERSON approach!

We are so excited to see your child grow through all of our leadership development programs; personally, professionally, spiritually, and physically as they learn to adapt the YLA Core Values: H.R.P.K.H. Honesty, Respect, Peace, Kindness, and Humility into their daily lives.
