Transform Fresno Youth Leadership Development Program Background
The Transform Youth Leadership Development Program is a year-long program which seeks to develop young people living in the Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) project area both professionally and personally to grow their leadership skills and to serve as ambassadors for Transform Fresno. Transform Fresno Youth Leaders will be trained in the areas of environmental justice, financial literacy, public speaking, and more.
