Young Alumni Leadership Program

Inaugural YALP group

The Young Alumni Leadership Program is a mentoring experience for individuals interested in developing their leadership ability. 

Young alumni who apply for the program are assigned a mentor who supports and challenges them to develop and implement a personal leadership plan, designed to broaden their leadership ability.

Participants take part in two experiential learning-based day-long workshops in Gettysburg, PA as well as a series of conference calls throughout the year to learn skills and strategies for the development of their leadership ability. The program utilizes The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership as outlined in The Leadership Challenge by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner as its theoretical foundation encouraging participants to develop the leadership ability to Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

If you are interested in applying to be a mentor for 2014-15, please complete the application by July 22, 2014.
