Youth Leadership Council

What is YLC?

2020 Youth Leadership Council
2020 Youth Leadership Council

Clogging Champions of America developed the Youth Leadership Council so that dancers from different teams in the United States would get to know each other and facilitate friendships and in doing that would form lifetime friendships and a healthy environment at competitions.

We host a yearly Retreat in the summer to bring these dancers under one roof and discuss what they can do as individuals to further reach out to dancers everywhere. At this time we decide what they can do to help in their community as well as the clogging world.

At the end of each year each director of our CCA community nominates 3 people from their team, based on their knowledge of the dancer, who would make a nice fit into our select group. Once the nominations have been made the CCA Board then selects 2 from each team.

A few things that the YLC does though-out the year is: Volunteer their time at clogging events, help design the program for the Retreat and further meetings throughout the year. Assist in raising money to support their group, create food drives and raise money for certain communities such as cancer and heart disease and keeps their eyes open for dancers who are in need of our Sponsor a Dancer program, which donates money to a student who is going through tough times. CCA believes they need to stay in their dance program so we donate money to their studio which would pay for their dance classes and shoes.

CCA believes that these younger people will continue our organization and make sure the younger dancers will have the same opportunities and friendships that we all have had.
