EG7B1169The 3rd Street Leadership Academy (3LA) is designed to engage youth in civics and advocacy.  After graduating from the Youth Outreach Squad, where they learn about health issues, youth can join 3LA to dive deeper into the social and environmental issues that impact their health and the health of the neighborhood.   Representatives from local and statewide initiatives are invited to present their case to the group and the youth are given the chance to provide not only feedback, but to decide if and how their program will endorse or engage the initiative.   3LA also has the chance to develop campaigns and programs that will benefit their community.  So what does it take to be part of 3LA?
