Young Adult Liberty Leaders Explained

Each year, the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce organizes and sponsors the annual Young Adult Liberty Leaders program, or YALL as it’s better known, giving students throughout the county a chance to learn more about how Liberty County operates. The program is now entering its 16th year and continues to be an enriching and engaging program for Liberty County youth.


Student participants take part in a rigorous 9-month class, meeting at least once per month and learning about various functions of the community, including County Government, City Government, Public Health, Public Education, Tourism, Economic Development and much more. This unique program allows high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn about topics like community collaboration & effective communication through an 9-month class. YALL is highly intensive and meets at least once a month to learn and discuss the different functions of Liberty County.

Who can apply?

  • Any 11th or 12th graders currently enrolled in a Liberty County school (Bradwell Institute, Liberty County High or First Preparatory Christian Academy).
  • Any student that would like to have a positive impact on their community while obtaining & applying new leadership skills.
  • Students who have a desire to gain a deeper understanding about their community.
  • Students that are ready to enhance their college & career readiness.

It is our hope that program attendees will go on to become strong leaders and shape the future of our county, region and state.

However, the selection process is highly specific as we are looking to develop promising and potential future community leaders. Applications are open and the deadline to apply is August 11, 2023.
