Youth Leadership Conference

Youth begin our program the summer before their 9th or 10th grade. Students request admissions to the Summer Youth Leadership Conference. The experience, for many low-income students, is the first experience to be away from home or experience leadership training. The conference provides students a space to develop leadership skills through an experimental method in public speaking, self-esteem, assertiveness, goal-setting and facilitation. The camp is led by alumni volunteers who went through the program and are now on the path (or are) in college. The conference will host 100 youth and 30 volunteer staff members.
