We are also launching the Boston-Based YALP this year as well. Dates for this city-based workshop are: Thursday, October 2, 2014
Thursday, May 7, 2015
There is a $250 participation fee for mentees, due when matched with a mentor. This fee covers our program book, The Leadership Challenge, food, drinks, and other program materials used during the workshops.
At this time we can only match approximately 15 mentees for the on-campus program and approximately 10 mentees for the Boston program. We regret that we cannot match every applicant, but we do our best to make the best mentor/mentee matches possible.
** You will have the chance to specify your preference between the On-Campus or Boston-Based workshops within this application.**
