Each year, youth from Alaska come together to learn about and discuss important topics such as positive relationships, non-violence, leadership, and community involvement.
Each year, SYLC members attend the conference with other leaders from around the state to add their voice to these conversation on behalf of Sitka's youth.
Applications are now available for the 2017 Lead On! youth leadership conference!
Youth plan and lead much of the conference. Youth also create plans to change their own communities, by planning projects with their peers around topics they care about. Scholarships are available, but limited, so apply as soon as possible. Due dates are Sept. 1st and Sept. 15th and spots are awarded on a first come first serve basis.
This year's conference will be held from November 17-19, 2017 in Anchorage, Alaska.
