Stuart Career Tech High School is joining more than 36,000 high school students nationwide to give one million books to underserved youth in their local communities as part of Chick-fil-A Leader Academy™, a national high school leadership program.
Students took part in a Chick-fil-A Leader Academy Kickoff Experience featuring the one million book giveaway service project at Stuart Career Tech High School on October 11, 2023. The one million books are sponsored by Chick-fil-A, Inc. and will be packaged and given by students to a local charity, elementary school, or non-profit organization of their choice.
More than 1,200 high schools take part in the seven-month program representing local communities across 45 states. The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy students at Stuart Career Tech High School have chosen to donate books to their local CASA Program.
