How YLP Works
Students who are admitted into the program are required to attend YLP orientation and all monthly meetings. Each monthly meeting will last for two hours (typically 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM) and consist of four major meeting component: Keynote speakers, Q&A session, reflection with mentors, and interactive activities.
Students are also required to participate in community involvement activities hosted by Chamber by volunteering and providing assistance in event planning needs.
2017 Program Agenda
With the main goal of fostering leadership and organizational skills, we expect students to play active roles in running the monthly meeting session.
Students will be divided into teams at the YLP orientation. Each team will be given a chance to plan and run one monthly meeting. They will be given the same budget to run the meeting and they will receive assistance from the YLP Committee and the Chamber in regards to finding speakers.
In order to help each team to prepare for hosting the monthly meeting, the YLP Committee will organize the first meeting with a main theme of project management. The following table shows the template of monthly meeting:
Possible Keynote Speakers Topics/Meeting Theme:
Each team will be allowed to choose one topic out of the nine available topics mentioned above. This topics list is drawn from the 2016 YLP program and is tentitive. Each event organizer team may propose their own topic, subject to approval by the YLP Committee and the Chamber.
