YLA has been creating the next generation of civic, business, and community leaders across Ohio and West Virginia for decades

We offer experiential learning programs and YLA Community Chapters with a focus on leadership, character and service to build better schools and communities. 

 

YLA Community Chapters

YLA Community Chapters are focused on building better schools and communities through service and leadership. Volunteering, raising awareness, fundraising, and having fun with your peers are just a few reasons to join a chapter in your school or community.

Model united nations

Ever wanted to live in a another country? Well, now you can...kinda.
MUN lets you become an ambassador for your choice of 193 countries across the world. Learn about your county's position on worldwide issues, and practice international diplomacy by representing your county in the General Assembly.

Youth in Government

Get the chance to learn civics in action! YG lets students run the state government for 3 days: debating bills, deliberating court cases, lobbying for support, and even running for Youth Governor. Join the Legislative, Judicial or Executive branch, or act as a lobbysit, page or a member of the press corps.

Fall Conference

Rejoin all of your friends and YLA family at Fall Conference. Share your service projects and ideas and learn some new ideas to take back to your chapter. Also experience mock sessions of the rest of our school year programs to prepare for all of the fun that will be had in the Spring!
Fall Con is a weekend of fun and YLA memories.

Youth & Government Seminars (YGS)

Learn more about your state government by seeing it in action! YGS gives 8th graders in WV and all Middle School students in OH the opportunity to visit their state capitol, meet their legislators, and learn about government with fun, interactive, hands on experiences.

Camps and Leadership Summits

Experience all of what YLA has to offer at one our week long camps and leadership summits at Camp Horseshoe in Tucker County, WV.
Get away from it all, and create lifelong memories and friendships, while having fun learning about character, leadership, service, entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
