CGLA and Mustang Leadership Partners

Wednesday was a warm and cloudless day for both the students of Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy (CGLA) and the mustangs of Mustang Leadership Partners (MLP).



The students were participating in a demonstration highlighting their work in the Student MLP program. Beginning in 2008, the program is a year-long commitment in which students work alongside former wild mustangs in order to develop and practice relationship skills, self-awareness, leadership, and responsibility. Students who show interest in the academically-backed program must undergo a challenging application and selection process to ensure their dedication to both themselves and the mustangs. 

This partnership between CGLA and MLP is one great example of the extra mile the school goes into guaranteeing their students learn skills that impact their whole life and not just those from a textbook.
