Teen Leadership Academy

The TLA (Teen Leadership Academy) and Advanced TLA programs are a combined effort between five Lincoln Trail Area counties including Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, LaRue and Meade Counties.  TLA eligible applicants must be incoming 8th-11th graders.  Advanced TLA applicants must be former TLA graduates. Applications are reviewed and selected by area 4-H agents.  Five applicants will be selected from each county to comprise a group of 25 4-H teens for TLA and ATLA each.  Applications are available in July and August each year.

The 4-H Teen Leadership Academy and Advanced Teen Leadership Academy are programs designed to enhance leadership skills both inside and outside of 4-H. They provide youth with many opportunities to strengthen leadership skills and allow teens to be an important part of their community’s positive development.
