Alamance Youth Leadership Academy

Elon University is located in the heart of Alamance County within the state of North Carolina. The goal of the Alamance Youth Leadership Academy (AYLA) is to empower youth through the connections of civic engagement and leadership development for a greater Alamance County.

The Center for Leadership is invested in the development of our youth in the local community. Elon University partners with the Alamance Chamber and the Alamance-Burlington School System to host the a summer institute and offers other leadership development opportunities throughout the academic year.

Adventures in Leadership

Campus Recreation & Wellness offers incoming students the opportunity to participate in Adventures in Leadership, a first-year summer outdoor experience which aims to ease first-year students’ transition to Elon, facilitate meaningful and authentic interactions between students, faculty, and the natural world that extend beyond the experience, and support self-authorship as students develop their paths and identities within a supportive and inclusive environment.
