Youth Leadership Program (YLP)

Cultivating Tomorrow’s Leaders.

YLP seeks to develop young individuals to be the next generation of community leaders; preparing them for constructive and responsible involvement in community affairs, while also thinking seriously about career pathways. Students apply during the end of their Sophomore year and begin the program in the summer going into their Junior year.

Throughout the 10-month program, students explore our community – its resources, leadership, issues, and opportunities. They share ideas and learn what it takes to become a consensus builder and effective decision-maker. Participants examine the functional areas of business and the career pathways found right here in their own backyards. They explore civic responsibility and the various roles they can play in their communities to inspire a life-long commitment to the Berkshires.
