Youth Leadership Congress (YLC) is a by-teens, for-teens cooperative leadership conference that is planned and developed by the youth board elected at the previous year’s event. Attending YLC will give you real-world skills to use in everyday life. You will learn about co-ops, leadership, interviewing skills, listen to great motivational speakers, meet new people, explore what life is like on a college campus, and most of all have fun! Attending YLC is an unforgettable experience, it’s a great resume builder, and looks fantastic on your college application.

Price Electric sponsors students to attend for FREE!  There is entertainment in the evenings, and students stay busy from early morning until late evening throughout the event.
