2019 CAL-PAL YMLA Collaboration
The National Teen Leadership Program is honored to be included in the inaugural 2019 CAL-PAL Youth Mentoring and Leadership Academy (YMLA), working with A’ric Jackson from Generation Leadership. The YMLA event is one of the “flagship” youth programs hosted by the California Police Activities League (CAL-PAL). Dedicated to supporting the youth in each PAL community, they work hard to provide them with life-changing opportunities and experiences they would likely not be able to enjoy otherwise at no cost.
