• Youth Leadership Council

    The Youth Leadership Council consists of youth from schools across St. Landry Parish, both private and public.

    This Crosswalk Beautification Project, spearheaded by the YLC and made possible by other volunteers including Mrs. Yvonne Normand, is just one of the many ways in which the Youth Leadership Council make tangible changes in the community.

    Their efforts use the culture of Louisiana, in this case our state song "You are my Sunshine", to fuel change where it is needed.
