Thank you for your interest in Youth Leadership Mobile

The Youth Leadership Mobile program identifies and empowers rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors from diverse backgrounds and schools in Mobile County who have the potential and interest in becoming trustees of their community. During the nine-month program participants will expand their leadership skills, be introduced to issues and opportunities in the community and learn how their leadership abilities can best fit those needs through the lens of servant leadership. We do this in an effort:
 
·        To bring together a diverse group from various social, economic, racial, and geographic backgrounds to learn about each other and the issues that confront the community.

·        To increase awareness of community issues, problems, opportunities, and successes to allow participants to nurture their ideas and talents as future leaders of Mobile.

·        To introduce the Youth Leadership Mobile participants to community leaders and decision makers.

·        To expand and develop their leadership skills, decision making capabilities, and communication skills through hands-on experiences.

·        To foster and develop an attitude of community service and participation through volunteer activities.

·        To assist youth in becoming more vested in Mobile in order to develop a lifelong commitment to their community.
