Youth Leadership Program members helped serve the Veterins Day dinnerin 2011Mossyrock Youth Leadership Program

The Mossyrock Youth Leadership Program is a youth leadership and life building program offered to middle and high school students in the Mossyrock School District. Projects are centered on community engagement. Students have the opportunity to work within their community, with other community organizations, and work on projects that enhance each others' and other community members' well being.

This is important because youth that are engaged in such activities are more likely to graduate.

In 2011, one of their projects was to help serve at the Veteran's Day dinner.

MAAL Grants and Scholarships

In 2011, MAAL awarded Civic Engagement Scholarships to Robert Stevens and Shannon Simon. Both seniors had exhibited exemplary service to their community. Proceeds from the Blueberry Festival dunk tank help fund these scholarships.
