Y-WE Youth Leadership Council 2019-2020

The Youth Leadership Council will run from October 2-June 1. In order to be eligible you must have previously completed at least one Y-WE Program. This year we will meet in person, though if Seattle Public Schools stops meeting in person, we will also switch to online meetings.

What kind of leader do you want to be?

YLC is for returning youth seeking to deepen their leadership and become stewards of Y-WE culture, by contributing their ideas to our Strategic planning process, supporting Y-WE staff to do direct outreach to other youth, building their skill as facilitators, and applying their leadership in the greater community. It’s also a space of self reflection, learning, and connection.

Opening retreat October 1-3

Bi-weekly on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:30

Location: Wa Na Wari (911 24th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122)

YLC will begin meeting in person, but Y-WE will prioritize the health and safety of our youth and be prepared to revert to online programming should that become necessary.

I want to continue being a part of the social justice work and to remember that I am enough.
