The CTE instructor team at Young Women's Leadership Academy is comprised of: Mr. Childs, Ms. Cavitt, Ms. Christensen, Dr. Robedee, Ms. Martinez, and Mr. Brisco.
While taking CTE courses, students have the opportunity to join Career and Technical Student Organizations, compete at local, state, and national levels, and earn certifications that help build professional portfolios while developing 21st century skills.
The world is yours! All YWLA scholars will be supported through their learning journey and graduate with an endorsement in their area of study and pathway.
