Two-Year Program | Applications for 2019-2020 are now closed.
Each fall, the Yosemite Leadership Program accepts a new cohort of participants into the campus-based, co-curricular leadership development program. These groups are kept small intentionally to provide participants with a personal, high-quality experience in leadership development. Most cohort activities for the 2019-20 academic year will occur on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm. All participants are required to participate in a Yosemite Retreat on the weekend of September 14-15.
Applications for Fall 2019 are now closed. Applications for the 2020-21 academic year will open summer 2020.
