Welcome to Let Youth Voices Be Heard!, the new 21st Century Leaders blog written and produced by our students. On this site you’ll read stories of extraordinary young people taking the lead and making a difference in their communities. You’ll discover teams of students from our Youth Action Center high schools who are organizing service projects that engage hundreds of youth each year in service to their communities. You’ll meet 21st Century Leaders alumni that are blazing trails beyond high school and college in the professional world. And you may even learn some important “leadership tips” along the way.
We’ve launched Let Youth Voices Be Heard! to celebrate National Youth Leadership Month. Each day in the month of February you’ll find a new story of a past Georgia Youth Leadership Awards winner- our 20 under 20- leading up to this year’s awards on February 21st (wonder why we picked that date?). So come back often, share the stories of these incredible young people through your social media networks, and share your stories of youth making an impact.
Check out some of our great 21st Century Leaders in action and join us on February 21st as we unveil the 2013 Georgia Youth Leadership Awards winners!
