Seeking Aspiring High School Leaders DUE 4-28!

The Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) is a leadership program geared towards next year’s high school sophomores and juniors in the greater Des Moines area that could be, or already are, our next generation of leaders.

The deadline is quickly approaching (April 28th) for applications, and we need more applicants.  So, if you work with high school students, know high school students, or have a connection to someone who works with high school students that fit this criteria, please pass on the following link and click-path to them for more information and both the application and adult reference forms. > Regional Workforce > Education

The goals of the YLI Program are:

• EMPOWERING youth to connect, participate in change, and create their ideal community
• ENCOURAGING youth to become active participants in their community
• ENGAGING youth in opportunities to invest their futures in the Greater Des Moines area

We hope to have a class next year of around 40 students.  Your help in achieving this goal is much appreciated!  Please feel free to share this email and my contact information as needed.


Helping you Do More.
