Rockdale Youth Leadership provides leadership development and community awareness training for 10th grade students in Rockdale County. Through collaboration with the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce and Rockdale County Public Schools, aspiring youth leaders will have the opportunity to interact with local decision makers and participate in community service activities. During the program, students will interact with community leaders, local elected officials, and school administrators to enhance their awareness of community needs and resources. Through interactive workshops, special tours, and community service projects, RYL participants will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become confident, caring leaders in their community and respective schools.
