Beginning in 2010, a portion of Young Leadership Society Members’ gifts helped launch Play & Learn. Since inception, this program offered opportunities for hundreds of children to develop cognitive skills while providing caregivers education on how to make play time a truly educational experience. The Young Leaders Society is proud of the partnership and the impact Play & Learn has had in the community. Effective July 2014, financial responsibility for Play & Learn shifted to Iowa State University Extension. To learn more about the program, please visit their page, Play & Learn of East Central Iowa.
