- 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 Kick-Off and Saturday retreat in August, six week-day programs from September to April, two Sunday skills workshops, and a closing retreat. The six week-day program days require you to be absent from 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?
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 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?
Students must have an email that they check regularly since all communications will be by email. A phone with text messaging capabilities is helpful.
