Greater Alabama Youth Leadership Development Program
The YLDP is a nine month program which meets once a month for approximately 2.5 hours (4:30-7). During each of these meetings the participants hear one or two speakers from the Birmingham area on an area of leadership. Also, during these sessions the participants participate in small group meetings where they learn various leadership traits through discussions and activities facilitated by local college honor students. In addition to the monthly meetings, there are numerous community service projects for the YLDP students to attend and learn the benefits and blessings of helping their own communities. Students who fully participate MAY be eligible for scholarships from the local colleges/universities participating in the program. OMHS can select up to two-11th grade and four-12th grade students to participate in the Youth Leadership Development Program. They are looking for students of character who have leadership potential who will be willing to consider various colleges. Students must be able to attend at least six of the first eight meetings. If interested, please submit a letter of interest and resume to the OMHS Guidance Center by Friday, Sept 2.
