Young Scholars Graduate Leadership Development Program
On November 15, 2018, the Young Scholars Graduate Leadership Development Program was recognized by The Genesis Group as an outstanding College Program! This is our program's second such recognition by The Genesis Group. Please read about this honor here!
Launched in January 2018, the goal of the Young Scholars Graduate Leadership Development Program is to offer graduates of YSLPP, who are enrolled in colleges near and far, or who are in the workforce, a defined program which will help them to advance their personal, professional, and community leadership skills. Graduates of this 10-month program will receive the Young Scholars Advanced Leadership Certificate at Utica University. We are grateful for our partnerships with The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc., RD Advisory Group, and Leadership Mohawk Valley.
