International Youth Leadership Conference

 

1988

The first Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) was held in Dallas, Texas in 1988 under the leadership of Brother Arnold Butler who was the Chairman of the International Social Action Committee.

 

 

YOUTH

In 1988 there were a vast number of programs for “at risk kids.” It was the general feeling of the Fraternity’s leadership that there were not enough programs designed to recognize young black males who were exhibiting positive academic and leadership abilities. Thus, the YLC was formed and adopted by Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. It is important to emphasize here that the YLC is not an “at risk” Conference!

 

QUALIFICATIONS

In order for the males of color to participate, he has to be in the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade in high school during the school year immediately following the end of the YLC.

 

GOALS

One of primary purposes of the activities of the YLC is to make sure that young participants are aware of the problems and conditions existing in the communities in which they live and how they can use their leadership skills and abilities to help improve these conditions.
