We are very excited that you have expressed an interest in
learning more about Urban Youth Impact’s after-school program, The Leadership
Academy. TLA is a literacy and leadership focused after-school program. As a
faith-based organization, our goal is to build Christ-like leaders. The TLA
staff is committed to love, equip, and empower every child entrusted to our
care. TLA's goal is to cater to the needs of the whole child through its
distinctive program fundamentals. During program hours, the staff will assist
students with homework, encourage a love of learning, teach and enhance life
skills, offer leadership training, enforce discipline, participate in
recreational and spiritually based activities, such as chapel and small group
sessions, and provide a loving, safe environment for every child. Part of
the uniqueness of TLA is that we also offer additional classes to our students
called SMART (Science Meets ART). In SMART, the
students are afforded an opportunity to enhance their learning experiences
through science and art related classes.
TLA has been designed to run in conjunction with the Palm Beach
County Schools. We try to mirror the PBCS calendar, in terms of days off,
holidays, and vacations. However, our start and end dates usually vary
slightly from that of the PBCS. TLA 2018-2019 will be accepting applications
