3rd Street Leadership Academy (3LA) gives youth interested in advocacy and political engagement the space to develop their leadership and change-making skills. Youth learn about health issues, politics, and dive deep into the social and environmental issues that impact their health and the health of their neighborhood. Participants have the chance to develop original campaigns and programs that will benefit their community. Each cohort of 3LA participants determine the areas of concern that the program will address, and the topics, health issues, and projects that their group will focus on.
