YLF Application DEADLINE
is March 17, 2017.

We are accepting student applications for the Youth Leadership Forum (YLF), which is on August 1-4, 2017 at CSU, Sacramento, pending funding availability. We are looking for students who are juniors or seniors in high school.

We are urging that students send their application, essay and letters of recommendations by March 17, 2017. (Our website will be updated soon to reflect the date change.) This is a competitive process and not all students will be chosen. After receiving their application, students will be interviewed. Our goal is to make final delegate determinations by April and May 2017.

Please work with your local DOR office to ensure that YLF applicants are either consumers or are applying to become consumers, so that they are in Plan at the time that YLF occurs.

If you have additional questions, please call the YLF team at (855) 894-3436.
