- How do I become a member of YLSS?
Applications for the 2019-2020 class are available now under the Apply tab. To be eligible, you must be a rising sophomore or junior.
- How much time does this take?
There are ten program days and a evening kick-off. Six program days are during school and four are on the weekends. You must be able to miss school on those six days. As part of the application process, you will need to get permission from your school principal and parents to miss school.
- When will YLSS meet?
To avoid students missing the same classes each month, we vary the days of the week we meet. You will receive a calendar of all our meeting dates and times at Kick-Off. We try to end each program day so that you are back at school for afternoon activities and transportation home.
- Is there an attendance policy?
All participants are expected to attend all events. We realize emergencies arise and ask that you let the YLSS Director know as soon as you know you will be missing an event.
- Is there a dress code?
Because we meet with business, government and community leaders, the dress is business casual for program days. Jeans and t-shirts are acceptable for retreats and Sunday afternoon workshops.
- What transportation is needed?
All YLSS students must provide their own transportation to and from all events.
- How does YLSS communicate?
We communicate through email and text messaging. Students must have an email address that they check regularly and a phone with text messaging capabilities.
