The Arthur Langford, Jr. Teen Leadership Institute promises to be an exciting, enlightening and empowering program. The Institute is sponsored by the United Youth-Adult Conference II (U.Y.A.C.), an organization dedicated to improving and making a difference in the lives of youth.

The late Arthur Langford, Jr. was a devout community servant. He began his career in politics as the youngest member of the Atlanta City Council and later became a State Senator. Mr. Langford founded the United Youth-Adult Conference as a means to bridge youth with adults. The Arthur Langford, Jr. Teen Leadership Institute will commence this summer to provide a forum for youth in inner city communities of Atlanta. The Institute will prepare our youth for leadership roles with emphasis on community service and civic responsibility. Our theme is "Putting God First in the New Millennium".

The Institute's goals are as follows:

  • To provide training for a new generation of leaders through a variety of approaches.
