The end of the YLA is the beginning of a year-long endeavor in leadership and personal development. Through Leadership Development Projects (LDPs), you will craft a project using your new skills to address a SDG-related issue in your community, applying your new knowledge to real-world challenges.
When you return home after the YLA, you will be supported and engaged in three ways with:
- The opportunity to apply for seed funding to help bring your LDP to life.
- The opportunity to attend a mid-year meeting at the Plan International USA office in DC, where you will reconvene, share progress, and continue to practice your skills;
- A Plan Youth Advisory Board mentor who will support you as you implement your LDP.
