Applications for the Youth Leadership Program sponsored by the Conejo/Las Virgenes Future Foundation are now being accepted. All students in grades 9-11 who attend school in the Conejo/Las Virgenes region are eligible.
Students accepted into this program will have the opportunity to develop effective leadership skills while learning more about their communities. The areas covered are: Introduction to Leadership, Local Government, Law Enforcement, Health Services, Recreation, Education, Community Services, and Business. The programs will be conducted by representatives from each of the above entities and the students will meet at the particular venue where the speaker works such as city hall, the hospital, etc. Each program will be very different and will range from tours, discussions, presentations, and more. All of the cities in the region will be participating. At the end of the program, students will be encouraged to participate in a community service project of their choosing.
The meetings will take place from 4-5:30 p.m. on the following Wednesdays: November 16, 2016, December 7, 2016, January 11, 2017, February 8, 2017, February 22, 2017, March 8, 2017, March 22, 2017, April 5, 2017, April 19, 2017 and April 26, 2017, and will be held at various nearby locations.

There is a non-refundable administrative fee of $50 per student upon acceptance. Scholarships are available based on need.
This is the eighth year of the Leadership Program, which follows twenty-five years of successful Youth Congresses sponsored by the Conejo/Las Virgenes Future Foundation. It has proven to be a very popular program, so we encourage students to apply early as there is a limit to the number that we can accommodate.
