Youth Leadership Coalition

Youth Leadership Coalition is an 8-week summer program for students entering 7th-10th grade. We meet every Monday and Wednesday in the summer from 10am-12pm at the Heights of Hope Community Center. Participants 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. Internship times vary.

YLC functions like a job. Participants fill out applications and go through an interview process to be selected and to be matched with their internship, then clock in and out each day to earn a small stipend of up to $200.
