Over 100 students and school counselors from 10 Phoenix Union schools attended the Diversity Leadership Alliance Youth Council Awards Ceremony, March 27 at the District office.  The Youth Council is designed to assist diversity-conscious students who have a desire to take on leadership roles in their schools and community, and the  transition from school to work.   These students have been attending workshops since September, developing leadership skills, becoming diversity advocates and creating a cultural change in their school community.  Seventeen students received $500 to $3000 scholarships, and three students presented their personal leadership speeches, and they will be competing for additional scholarships.  Diversity Leadership Alliance (DLA) is a non-profit organization that provides diversity and inclusion education, resources, tools and forums to the Phoenix area.
