ABOUT

Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) is an organization of Milwaukee Chinese Community Center (MCCC), a non-profit organization that is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. MCCC’s goals are to showcase and promote Chinese culture in the Greater Milwaukee area to help — together with local communities — build a diverse cultural environment in Greater Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin. YLA provides a platform for the youth in the community to embrace their organizational and leadership skills, while broadcasting Chinese culture by organizing and volunteering at various community events and services such as Rock ‘N Sole, Dragon Boat Festival, Holiday Folk Fair, and China Lights, to name a few. YLA currently has eight teams under its wings with members from 6th grade to 12th grade. Parents, families, and volunteers from the community are of strong support to our members.

Any questions, comments, updates about new/missing information, or suggestions may be submitted through the contact form. Thank you for visiting!
