The Youth Civic Leadership Institute (YCLI) is a leadership opportunity held at the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas for incoming high school seniors throughout Kansas. The three-day, two-night program includes a variety of speakers, outings, workshops and brainstorming sessions focusing on the importance of civic engagement in our democracy. YCLI includes a visit to the State Capitol in Topeka to meet with our state leaders and discuss issues. This exciting leadership opportunity is provided at no cost to the accepted students.
Each Kansas high school is invited to nominate up to two students for the YCLI experience. Students interested in attending YCLI should contact their school counselor or administrator.
