Youth Leadership Institute (YLI)


We thank you for your interest in the 2022 Youth Leadership Institute.  Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, is delighted to offer a program to begin reaching our girls and boys at an early age, preparing them for their future.  In doing so, this program will provide:

  • Mentoring for young girls and boys to become productive citizens and future leaders.

  • Workshops and training that will develop and enhance leadership and social skills

  • Reinforcement of self-worth for each participant.


We want to train our young girls and boys to lead with knowledge, confidence, and tools of distinction by equipping them with sound principles and values to make good life choices and decisions in their everyday lives. During the project, our young leaders will spend several months in monthly workshops on etiquette, grooming, health, career preparation, leadership, and more. In addition to this, they will attend social and cultural events and participate in a community service project. As a culmination to the project, leaders will be honored at the end of the program with a night to honor all of their accomplishments. Please click here to complete the application.
