We are pleased to invite you and your friends to the 2019 Hudson Youth Leadership Academy, or HYLA, as we like to say. HYLA will offer leadership skill building workshops in an intense, and exciting five-day summer camp. You will learn about issues affecting your community and your world and have the opportunity to develop a project to make a positive impact! This is a chance to share your goals, strengthen your skills, and make life-long friends.

Young people like you today, have so much to offer as the leaders of tomorrow! With this view and our passion to see young people empowered, the Kurz Family Foundation initiated collaboration between Creative Response to Conflict (CRC), Me to We, Free the Children and Rockland Community College (RCC).

The fee for registration is $30, and scholarships are available upon request.
