The Leadership Center for Youth (TLC), a division of Family & Youth Counseling Agency (FYCA), in collaboration with the Children and Families Action Network (CFAN) coordinates a congressional trip to Washington, D.C. each year to support Southwest Louisiana youth learning the importance of becoming involved in the democratic process. The experience in Washington, D.C. exposes area youth to advocacy work, civic engagement, and opportunities to make a difference. Visits with Louisiana congressional men and women give the youth the chance to voice their views on issues that affect their quality of life.
