(WLYS) application is now available to qualified high school juniors and
Washington Youth Leadership Seminar Student Application Available Now
Deadline: August 18, 2020
The Washington Youth Leadership Seminar offers a truly unique opportunity for students to voice their opinions directly to national leaders and policymakers. It challenges participating youth to focus on their own leadership development and encourages participants to apply these lessons back in their communities. Participants are recommended by LNESC Centers or LULAC Councils to serve as representatives of their home states. After meeting with key policymakers in the field and discussing with representatives, participants collaborate on a position piece, which is then sent to their congressional representatives. In past years, students have focused on issues as varied as the environment, education, immigration, healthcare reform and the economy.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s seminar will be held virtually from September 24 to September 26.
To be considered for the program, students must meet the requirements below and submit the online application here by 6 pm ET August 18, 2020.
- Must be sponsored by an LNESC Center or LULAC Council
- Must be an incoming high school junior or senior
