Y.E.L.L. is a free youth leadership program that is open to all 6th, 7th & 8th grade students on Nantucket. Community leaders present a diverse array of topics to the participants and afterwards the students have a chance to react and share their thoughts on subject matters. This year we will be taking a number of educational field trips around the island. YELL is facilitated by a collaboration between the Nantucket Police Department and The Nantucket Community School.  Generous financial sponsors include ASAP Nantucket and The Nantucket Yacht Club.
