2021 Virtual Youth Leadership Institute – Registration Now Open!

This year the Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) will take place virtually December 3-5, 2021.  Additionally, board members are invited to attend a youth panel on December 11, where we will also launch a digital story created with our students. 

This year, YLI is focused on creating opportunities for students to build leadership skills, develop their personal leadership style, and learn how to advocate for themselves and their peers.

We will focus on strengthening youth resilience and self-care skills through storytelling workshops and connection with peers across the state.
