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). TLA is an after-school program that focuses on the Lord,
literacy, and leadership. 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 reading and
learning, teach and enhance life skills, offer leadership training, enforce
discipline, participate in recreational- and spiritual-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's calendar, in terms of days
off, holidays and vacations. However, our start and end dates usually
vary slightly from that of the PBCS. TLA 2019-2020 will be accepting
