- How do I become a member of YLSS?
Applications for the classes will be available on this site in January. To be eligible, you must be a rising sophomore or junior.
- How much time does this take?
Mandatory program activities include an evening induction ceremony and Saturday retreat in August, six weekday programs from September to April, a class service project and a spring graduation. The induction, retreat, service project and graduation ceremony will be on weekends or at night and will not require a school absence.
- When will YLSS meet?
To avoid students missing the same classes each month, YLSS will vary the days of the week we meet. You will receive a calendar of all our meeting dates and times at induction.
- Is there an attendance policy?
Yes, all class members are required to sign an attendance contract and pledge to attend all planned events. We realize emergencies arise and have outlined attendance standards in the contract.
- Is there a dress code?
Because we will be meeting with business, government and community leaders, the dress will be business casual for program days. Jeans and T-shirts will be acceptable for retreats and service project days.
- What transportation is needed?
All YLSS students must provide their own transportation to and from all events.
- How does YLSS communicate?
Students must have an email that they check regularly since all communications will be by email.
