Youth Leadership Authority (YLA) is a non-profit organization created to encourage and empower teens and young adults, ages 12-21 to become well balanced and self-confident!
Marie Tomao founder and CEO of the YLA encouraged any youth that wants to get involved to contact her at (702)285-4142. Training starts on May 12th at Sunset Park.
YLA has been operating successfully for the past 11 years as Southern Nevada Devil Pups (SNDP) as a volunteer organization. YLA will continue to operate SNDP and will also host a variety of other youth leadership programs to compliment SNDP in order to better serve our youth.
