About us

We at The Westside Young Leaders Academy (WYLA) have a dedicated team who are passionate about producing successful men who understand they are born to be GREAT!

We provide a range of classes and opportunities designed to bring out this GREATNESS! We sincerely believe that EVERY young person matters and with the right support they can achieve and live their dreams.

WYLA is made up of young African Caribbean boys, from eight to eighteen years of age, who attend inner city schools and are faced with adult challenges earlier in life than expected.

The goals of WYLA are to instil the tenets of success in our leaders at an early age, creating an awareness and understanding of the opportunities that exist for their lives.

The Academy provides consistent motivation to encourage participants to stay focused and to pursue those opportunities with passion.

WYLA were awarded the the Bronze Award from the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education in July 2015.
