The Youth Leadership Long Beach motto is “discover the leader within.” The youth are challenged to step out of their comfort zones to grow, embrace the diversity of their community, and to create friendships and connections outside their regular school and family circles. The goal is to empower students to build an awareness of the community in which they live, connect them with their youth peers from across the city and be inspired to work together to make Long Beach better.
