Youth LEAD OKC is a cultural competency program sponsored by the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City, Casady High School Service Learning Program, and Mercy School Institute. It is open to teens from 9th to 12th grade from public, private and home schools. YLOKC is a branch of Massachusetts based Youth Lead Online.
Youth LEAD OKC experiences are developed, planned, and implemented by teens for teens. Youth LEAD OKC teens come from a wide range of ethnic, cultural, economic, and faith backgrounds. OKC Youth LEADers explore their own identities as well as their similarities and differences and act together to build the next generation of community and global leaders.
There is a $30 annual fee which covers a t-shirt and operating program expenses which are subsidized by YMCA and in-kind donations by participating schools.
