Youth Leadership Bakersfield

Modeled after the Leadership Bakersfield program, the Youth Leadership Bakersfield program inspires and develops future business and community leadership among high school-aged youth of the Greater Bakersfield area by providing an interactive opportunity that directly links students to community leaders, business issues and career opportunities. Programs focus on a wide range of local interests, including agriculture, arts and culture, criminal justice, energy, health and human services and leadership and ethics.
