Louisiana Youth Seminar, Inc
- Government & Education
Louisiana Youth Seminar is an annual weeklong leadership camp targeted for 300 high school students with leadership potential from across the state and adjoining states. Now in its fourth decade, LYS has impacted the lives of 10,000 young men and women. LYS focuses on leadership skills including: Setting and Achieving Goals, Solving Problems, Communicating Effectively, Building a Team, Conducting Meetings, Understand and Accepting Ourselves and Others, Developing Self Confidence and Believing in Ourselves.
LYS is a transformational leadership experience and is hands on and active. The LYS staff is 36 young professionals who are mainly in college and who themselves have attended LYS as a student and had that LYS experience.
Students come to LYS in a variety of ways: nominated by their school or a teacher, registered by their parent, recruited by a LYS alum, or recommended by a friend. Young men and women leaders from all backgrounds are encouraged to attend. LYS is held the third week in July at Louisiana State University.

Our major sponsors are Shell, BP, Boardwalk, Entergy, Christus Health and Acadian Ambulance. Over 300 individual donors give the Gift of Leadership each year to support LYS in keeping tuition affordable.
