Youth Opportunities

Young people, we value the hard work you do at YLI, so many of our programs offer unique opportunities for compensation. These include:

  • Stipend – this means you will get paid for your contributions to the program
  • Transportation Reimbursement – we know it can be costly to get to and from our programs, so we’ll reimburse you for your travel
  • Community Service/Volunteer Hours – these can be logged for whatever project or obligation that requires community service
  • Grant/Scholarship – these are opportunities to apply for a funding for you or for your project
  • School Credit – some programs act as class electives, others offer course credit and/or field hours
  • Authorship on Publications/Letters to the Editor – your name will appear in print on program publications and/or in news outlets

By working with YLI, you will also have many other opportunities and gain many valuable skills that will help you to build your resume. These might include:

  • Public speaking
  • Campaign planning and implementation
  • Facilitating trainings and meetings
  • Building your network
  • Giving interviews
  • Partnering with elected officials and other local and statewide leaders

And you can count on us to support you in any opportunity you seek after participating in our programs, which might include a letter of recommendation; connecting you to people, programs, and scholarship opportunities, and/or being a reference on a job application.
