The LNESC National Office would like your help identifying outstanding Latino high school juniors and seniors for the 2019 Washington Youth Leadership Seminar (WLYS). This year’s seminar will focus on the 2020 U.S. Census from September 25 to September 29, 2019 in Washington, DC!

The Washington Youth Leadership Seminar offers a truly unique opportunity for students to voice their opinions directly to national leaders and policymakers. It challenges participating youth to focus on their own leadership development and encourages participants to apply these lessons back in their communities. Participants are recommended by LULAC Councils to serve as representatives of their home states. Once in Washington DC, students work with LNESC staff and LULAC leaders from across the country to develop a platform of initiatives which are of particular interest to Latino youth. After meeting with key policymakers in the field and discussing with think tank representatives, participants collaborate on a position piece, which is then sent to their congressional representatives. In past years, students have focused on issues as varied as the environment, education, immigration, healthcare reform and the economy.

To apply, students must be the following requirements:

  • Must be sponsored by a LULAC Council
  • Must be an incoming high school junior or senior
  • Must demonstrate high academic achievement and extracurricular involvement
  • Must be actively involved in leadership and community activities
  • Must submit a copy of a current transcript
  • Applicants must complete the online application here by August 23, by 6:00 pm (ET). Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
