Citi Sponsors CLYLP’s Sacramento Leadership Conference College and Careers Day

City Community Development

CLYLP is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012 —a landmark achievement for our non-profit, all-volunteer organization. As CLYLP and its leaders, student participants and alumni reflect on three decades of commitment to developing and enhancing the leadership potential of California’s future leaders, we express our appreciation to those who have helped us in achieving this mission since the first CLYLP conference was organized in 1982.

Through Citi’s generous sponsorship of events such as College & Career Day, CLYLP is able to continue providing these beneficial program s at no cost to students and their families. At such an important moment for our organization, every contribution counts, and every sponsorship represents another gateway for helping our CLYLP students reach their fullest potential. 

More than 100 high school students from all over California are joining CLYLP at our Sacramento Leadership Conference for a week of seminars, forums, panels and other hands-on programming aimed at connecting conference participants to the four C’s: culture, community, college, and careers.

On CLYLP’s College & Career Day, students will be exposed to a variety of workshops, including how to manage personal finances, a how-to on writing the personal statement, and receive one on one sessions with college counselors. To learn more about the professional world, there is also a panel moderated by individuals from various fields and professions, such as medicine, law, media, and governmental affairs.

Additionally, students will participate in a college fair, where representatives from schools all around the country will offer information and counsel to the CLYLP youth who are already thinking about their own college careers. The higher education institutions represented at the college fair include University of California and California State University campuses , private universities such as Stanford University and Pomona College, and representatives from the ‘Ivy League’ universities , such as Columbia University and Brown University.
