Two-Year Program | Applications for 2020-2021 will open August 1.
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 2020-21 academic year will occur on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm. Please note that due to our campus's collective response to COVID 19, all programming for the coming semester will be remote.
