SLC Staff Application

The CLYLP Sacramento Leadership Conference (SLC) provides a life-changing experience for high school students with the help of a special team of volunteers. Serving as conference Facilitators, Peer Counselors and Support Staff, these exceptional individuals commit to spending one full week in Sacramento mentoring and sharing their talents with students, making a significant impact on the students’ lives. CLYLP seeks energetic volunteers from various backgrounds and experiences to guide and shape 120 of California’s future leaders. CLYLP alumni are especially welcomed to re-connect with the CLYLP familia by volunteering as a conference staff member.

Volunteers must apply to join SLC staff. CLYLP selects highly qualified candidates based on their personal background, mentoring experience, and their desire and willingness to share their knowledge and experience with students.  Staff applications are typically available in March or April of each year.

All volunteer staff are required to arrive in Sacramento by the evening of Thursday, July 20, 2017, to complete a mandatory orientation and training session.  Persons selected to become SLC staff members will be given further information about their specific roles and duties during the conference.

Volunteers are housed at California State University, Sacramento, and all activities take place in the City of Sacramento. Transportation to and from Sacramento is provided by CLYLP.
