The Youth Leadership Development Program (YLDP) is designed to provide middle and high school alumni of Club Compass the opportunity to develop as leaders, graduate from high school, and be prepared for college, vocational / trade school, the military, and/or to enter the workforce. The ultimate goal is for these youth to be ready to achieve their dreams.

Components of this new, free, program, being piloted during the 2023-2024 school year, include:

  • An evidence-based social-emotional learning curriculum, Teen Outreach Program (TOP)
  • Life and job skills classes (e.g. résumé and cover letter writing, job interview skills, and making post-secondary plans)
  • Immediate application of leadership skills while working with elementary students at Club Compass
  • Service learning
