Youth Leadership Coalition was born out of the desire for positive, empowering summer programming for students who are too old for children’s programming in our neighborhood, but too young to have their own jobs yet. It is a 10-week program designed to give 8th-11th graders opportunities to explore their strengths and leadership potential, learn job readiness skills, build relationships with other ambitious youth and leaders in our community, and have real work experience at an internship. YLC functions like a job and participants fill out applications and go through an interview process to be selected and to be matched with their internship, then punch in and out each day with a time card in order to earn a small stipend.
