Twenty-five young professionals were selected to participate in YPAL’s tenth Emerging Leaders Program presented by Luckett & Farley and YPAL Cares.

Over the past three months, these individuals took part in an accelerated and intensive experience designed to address the leadership development needs of young professionals. They finished the program with a clear understanding of their strengths, values and personality in the context of being a more effective leader.

Their class project centered on a Live.Work.Play survey for young professionals in our city. The survey will go live in January.
