• Celebrating 18 years

    • The specific purpose of the SAYLA is to provide high school students who are entering the 11th grade or 12th grade residing in Guadalupe County, Texas with a theoretical and operational foundation in the essential skills, beliefs, and practices of leadership to prepare the students to make a positive impact on the quality of life in their community.
    • The objectives of the SAYLA are to identify students who have demonstrated leadership qualities or displayed a potential toward leadership to participate as a group representing a diverse group of students including gender, ethnicity, and geographic areas.  The students selected will be presented with in-depth programs to acquaint them with community needs, opportunities, challenges, and resources, and to encourage interaction with community leaders, as well as being given the opportunity to foster opportunities for teamwork and collaborative problem-solving.  
    • Students must be willing to commit to attending all activities and have all required signatures of permission. They must have passed every course in the last semester prior to the application deadline. 
    • The estimated value of the program tuition is $500. Thanks to the generosity of community sponsors, students will attend the program for $25 (non-refundable).
