To God be the glory for all the great things He has done! Young Ambassadors Leadership Academy (YALA) is grateful for an amazing year that allowed us to have an opportunity to pour into the lives of our young boys and teens. YALA is a learning tree, a place to build character, instill positive morals and values, teach life skills, and encourage personal and academic excellence. Truly they are significant and intelligent, and over 10 weeks they engage in an experience that we hope they will carry with them for a lifetime.
Our newest segment, THE AMBASSADORS, offers our teens, 13 – 16, challenging and thought provoking questions. This is a challenging time for our teens, and they need guidance in their lives to help them understand the changes that they are experiencing and how to manage life. Prayerfully we are looking for this area to grow and we will be working diligently to increase participation.
We thank each Ambassador for their commitment to the program. Our desire is that each of the Young Ambassadors and THE AMBASSADORS will always reflect on their oath and continue to strive to be all that God has created them to be and to take RESPONSIBILITY for their own actions. As an Ambassador, may you always respond from the heart and believe that you can “spread your wings” and pursue personal and academic excellence.
“As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.” Proverbs 23:7
We invite each of you to spread the word about YALA and invite others to visit us here throughout the year to see how we are growing in the San Fernando Valley.
