The originators of Youth Leadership Anaheim (YLA) believed that if you invest in young people and educate them about the community and their role in it, they will initiate positive change in their schools, neighborhoods, places of worship, and homes. The two primary objectives of YLA are to instill an appreciation for the diverse people, places, and opportunities available in Anaheim and throughout the County, and to encourage young people to lead in whatever way they can generate change.
In May 2004, a group of YLA members decided to take action by answering the call for youth leadership. Led by Lisa Charukul, the youth designed and hosted the first official YLA Charity Talent Show. The evening was a tremendous success, and per the group’s request, 100% of the proceeds were designated to CWLA.
