Leadership Oklahoma, a statewide leadership program, is now accepting applications for its 2021 Youth Leadership Oklahoma (YLOK) class.
Applications are accepted on line and can be accessed through the Leadership Oklahoma website or at: www.app.smarterselect.com/programs/68968-Leadership-Oklahoma-City.
The deadline to submit applications is Friday, January 15, 2021. Applications must be submitted online by that date. Applicants must be high school juniors or home-schooled equivalent with at least a 3.25 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
Youth Leadership Oklahoma accepts class members from across the state each year. The program traditionally includes a weeklong journey across the state to introduce high school students between their junior and senior years to state leaders, issues, resources and cultural treasures of Oklahoma. The program dates for Youth Leadership Oklahoma (YLOK) Class 21 will be May 30 – June 4, 2021.
Many of our youth graduates have shared that YLOK was a life-changing experience.
A member of the Youth Leadership Oklahoma’s 2020 class wrote, “YLOK was a great opportunity for us to learn about our personal leadership styles. I learned how to listen to other perspectives before making my opinion. I also learned in any leadership position, there will be people who do not have the same views as you and that is good. Listening to other people is one of the greatest ways to learn.”
Criteria for selection includes demonstrated leadership ability in activities such as student council, athletics and service clubs in their schools and communities as well as an exhibited commitment to community service and extra-curricular activities.
Participants are also considered on the basis of geographic, racial and cultural diversity.
