Youth Leadership Institute


Nomination Form

Students do not have to be nominated to apply. If you are currently a high school student in the Kansas City Metro area, go Apply Now!

Since many high school students don't imagine spending a week of their summer at a leadership camp, we rely on the community to nominate promising students to attend. Knowing an adult or one of their peers believes in them can spark a teenager to act, inspire a change and elevate their self esteem. The YLI staff will follow up with each nominee individually to encourage application to the program.

Tuition Assistance

If students cannot afford the full tuition cost of $195, they may apply for financial aid in the form of a grant from the Overland Park Rotary Foundation. Parents should submit a request, in writing, to the YLI Program Coordinator. The request must include an explanation of the need for financial assistance.
