Section 16-55-20

Declaration of legislative findings.

The Legislature finds that the development of leadership qualities among young citizens is essential to the future well-being of Alabama. The rapid pace of social and technological change and the resulting uncertainty about the future call for strong leadership at all levels. The Legislature further finds that there is a need to identify and build leadership skills among Alabama's young citizens, particularly those who may not otherwise benefit from existing leadership programs.
