High school students are being recruited to apply for Youth Leadership Davis (previously Youth Leadership Institute of Davis), a yearlong program that equips them to be community leaders through hands-on experience, skill-building and education.
As trained interns at Davis’ Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter, the high school students learn about the root causes of homelessness. They received intensive shelter training and certification in mental health first-aid.
Moral, ethical and spiritual reflection is a component of the program. However, YLD is a non-denominational, non-sectarian program open to all high school students in grades 10-12.
