Leader Learning Plans

One unique aspect of all GYLI programs is the “LLP” which transfers learning to real projects in communities and schools. The LLP has four parts:
1. Vision
2, Goals
3. Strategies

4. Resources

 The LLP is a commitment to action to ensure that the GYLI learning continues beyond the institute. By undertaking an LLP, participants develop their leadership skills in their communities.

Within GYLI, we believe that our youth are leaders NOW, and LLP projects are not mere exercises or activities, but the framework for how our communities will move forward.
