Young Leaders Join Revlon Run/Walk

About 80 members of the Long Beach Unified School District's new Female Leadership Academy participated in the recent Revlon Run/Walk in Los Angeles as a community service project.

The academy is a leadership development program designed to empower young women and increase their graduation and college enrollment rates.  FLA activities provide a pathway to life-long student success through academic rigor, real world experiences and community engagement.

The run/walks in Los Angeles and New York have distributed over $65 million for cancer research, treatment, counseling and outreach.











LEADERS IN TRAINING -- Female Leadership Academy Coordinator Sunday Abbot, teacher Kelly Rash, students from the academy, and Small Learning Communities Coordinator Alissa Gamboa -- all from Jordan High School -- were among dozens of Female Leadership Academy students from local high schools who participated in the annual Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Los Angeles
