The Alsobrooks Youth Leadership Institute (AYLI) is a 27-member body of Prince George’s Proud youth from throughout the County. AYLI is a diverse group of youth (ages 15-17, grades 9-11) from different backgrounds - ethnic, economic and social who are serious about the lives of youth in our County and interested in County government. The program is an intense emersion-learning opportunity in which participants are required to attend 95% of the program meetings, modules, and service activities. AYLI is looking for forward-thinking young people who want to invest in their personal and professional growth while giving back and paying it forward. AYLI will represent the best of our youth and those who have a desire to make a positive impact on not just Prince George’s County, but the world.
