Now Accepting Applications for 2020 Youth Leadership Academy
Applications are due by March 27, 2020
The application period for the 2020 Class of the Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) is now open! YLA is an exciting opportunity for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to participate in customized learning and fun through personal and career, advocacy, and leadership development activities - all especially designed for youth with disabilities.
Delegates will learn directly from peer mentors and successful adult role models while they work on their own personal leadership plans, improve their communications skills, visit the state capitol, and have a chance to speak directly to state legislators and policymakers, and much more! This four-day intensive learning experience will take place on the Campus of Virginia State University from July 13-16, 2020.
Best of all, all expenses are paid by the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities, including food and lodging!
Only 25 students will be selected through a highly-competitive application process, but those lucky students will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop themselves and make brand new lifelong friends!
