Calling all high school students! We are now accepting applications for our 2014 YLC Conference!
About the 2014 Conference
Dates: June 27-29, 2014
Location: Rice University
This year’s conference theme is #StepUp @YLCHouston. All great leaders have causes or passions, whether light-hearted or serious, local or global, for which they step up. Stepping up can be as simple as raising awareness about an issue through social media to something more complicated, like creating a non-profit organization for a cause. Through a multitude of fun and educational activities, our program this year will empower and enable you to step up for what you believe in.
- Develop & practice leadership and communication skills
- Learn from college and young professional mentors
- Challenge yourself through a series of team-building activities
- Enjoy a weekend in a Rice University dormitory
- Meet new friends from across the city, state, and country
- Showcase your talents through our Café Y event
- Receive opportunities for scholarships
- Add a ton of excitement to your summer!
