The Carlsbad Student Leader Academy program strives to address issues affecting youth in Carlsbad and close the gap between adult and youth perspectives. By placing youth at the table, we are ensuring a voice and an action to better create a sense of place and home. The Carlsbad Student Leader Academy program will serve as a robust sounding board, be committed to self-development coupled with service learning. This group will spearhead dynamic youth leadership efforts for innovative projects targeting the future populace of Carlsbad.
