THINK LOCAL: Growing out of the belief that dollars circulated locally build in value, this program encourages residents to use local merchants and services first.

Participants tour local, regional and state points of interest to gain contextual information about the inner workings of government, businesses and community service organizations.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY: Similar in structure to the adult Leadership Fremont, YLA is targeted to high school juniors. Added to the curriculum are hands-on immersive activities in civics led by Fremont’s mayor and group projects that end with public presentations.
