Over the years Marie Tomao, Founder and CEO of Youth Leadership Authority, has devoted countless hours assisting in the development of youth in Southern Nevada through Southern Nevada Devil Pups (SNDP). She quickly became a force to be reckoned with within the organization and has set the bar incredibly high for her colleagues in other chapters of Devil Pups.
One thing Marie noticed, is after the Devil Pup program would run it course each year, many youth kept asking now what? For years she toiled with how to keep the youth engaged after Devil Pups. She created a new level within Devil Pups called Eagle Helper, which allowed more youth to stay involved and continue to contribute and be valuable young members of society.
Soon she realized, this was still not enough. What came next is Youth Leadership Authority!
