Blue Ribbon Youth Leadership Institute
Blue Ribbon Youth Leadership Institute seeks to provide youth with leadership skills necessary to become servant leaders in their communities, to make meaningful contributions to their communities and to empower them to be advocates for change. YLI is dedicated to providing leadership opportunities, service-learning projects, and college exposure to our students, with a focus on improving access to these opportunities for minority students. The core of YLI is a summer leadership development camp. For two weekends students develop teamwork, communication, and empowerment skills through experiential education. Then throughout the year students put their leadership skills into practice through monthly service projects in the community. YLI students meet as a club twice a month at each high school. At club meetings, students provide peer-support, reflect on the lessons they gain from service, and prepare for college visits and service projects. YLI students also have the opportunity to participate in our alternative spring break trip outside of North Carolina to engage in service in other communities. We have YLI clubs at Chapel Hill High School, East Chapel Hill High School, Carrboro High School, and Phoenix Academy. Students grades 9-12 are invited to join.
