2020 Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) (Applications are due by March 27, 2020)

Description:

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR YLA 2020

The Youth Leadership Academy is an exciting new opportunity for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors with disabilities to participate in customized learning and fun through personal and career, advocacy, and leadership development activities.

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!

Delegates will learn directly from peer mentors and successful adult role models while they work on their own personal leadership plans, enhance their communications skills, visit the state capitol, have a chance to speak directly to state legislators and policymakers, and much more! Best of all, all expenses are paid by the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities, including food and lodging!
