WHAT IS REGIONAL LEARNING?

Many young people want to improve the communities and schools in which they live and learn, but they don’t know where to begin. 


The Regional Learning Community works together to educate and empower each other as Adult Allies and support our young people in leading community change efforts that utilize effective, evidence-based prevention strategies.

WHAT IS AN ADULT ALLY?

Adult Allies are basically any adults that are working with youth through this youth-led prevention process.  Empowering young people to address pressing issues within their communities through youth-led programs (YLP).

what is a youth-led program?

Youth-led programs (YLP) are distinct because they develop young people’s knowledge, skills and attitudes to be catalysts for positive change within their communities. At the core of YLP, youth are engaged in collective activities and experiences that are intended to spark their interest and enhance their ability to address local issues. In short, YLP empower young people to create community change.  


One example of a youth-led program would be the Youth Advisory Council here in Fulton County.
