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.

Why Come?

  • 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!

During our 2011 Conference “Don’t Hate, Innovate!“, we challenged our students to design and implement their own Innovative Community Projects. After a record 17 idea submissions, our judges picked the top 3 projects based upon creativity, planning, and execution. Congratulations to our following 3 students who were each awarded a $1,000 college scholarship!

Priscilla Ly (Dallas, Texas) – “Game for the Cure: Modern Warfare 3 Charity Tournament”

Priscilla created a charity gaming tournament featuring the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The event also featured a photo booth, raffle drawings, poster signings, board games, and a buffet table. Priscilla also designed and hand-created custom t-shirts for event participants. Game for the Cure was a huge success and participants have already begun requesting a 2nd tournament!

Ray Van (South El Monte, California) – “Threads for Those in Need”

Ray worked with three youth councils and a school club (26 total participants) to organize a clothing drive for Goodwill. They made 4 different flyer designs and passed out over 5,000 flyers in five different cities: Arcadia, Temple City, Alhambra, El Monte, and Northridge. They also collected clothes at school by offering $50 American Express gift cards as incentives. In the end, they collected enough clothes to fill over half a Goodwill donation truck, floor to ceiling!

Calvin Wong (Alhambra, California) – “Pathways to Healthcare Professions Workshop”

Calvin organized a healthcare professions workshop featuring speakers talking about the healthcare industry (from orthopedic surgery to pharmacy) in a panel discussion and small group sessions led by the respective speakers. The event was co-sponsored by the Chinese American Citizens Alliance Youth Council (CACA) and its attendees included both students and parents who wished to learn more about the job of different health professionals.
