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 2018-19 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 22-23.
Applications for Fall 2018 are open!

Summer Internship: Application Closed until Spring 2019.
Each summer, the YLP provides UC Merced undergraduates the opportunity to live and work in a national park during a 12-week residential summer internship experience. Any UC Merced student is welcome to apply whether or not you have been involved in a campus YLP cohort. As a component of students' professional development, the summer internship has a separate, rigorous application process. So please follow directions carefully.
