Do you know a teenager who has the potential and desire to be a leader in our Fayette County community? AVPRIDE’s youth leadership program, Fayette Youth Leaders PRIDE (FYLP), is accepting applications for 25 new participants for this spring.

Interested high schoolers are invited to the FYLP Spring Flight Meet and Greet on Saturday, Feb. 23, at Starbucks located in the Peachtree East Shopping Center, from 1-3 p.m. Students will be able to meet FYLP leadership, engage with current FYLP students, and learn more about how they can be a part of this elite leadership program.
