Young Scholars Graduate Leadership Development Program


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 College. We are grateful for our partnerships with The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc., RD Advisory Group, and Leadership Mohawk Valley.
  • On June 28, 2018, 26 YSLPP Alumni from the summer cohort of the Graduate Leadership Development Program received their Advanced Leadership Certificates from YSLPP. This group brought together YSLPP alumni who attend, or in some cases, have graduated from: Cazenovia College, Clark Atlanta University, Cornell University, Howard University, Hudson Valley CC, Ithaca College, Le Moyne College, Mount Holyoke College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Pratt Institute- Brooklyn, Rochester Institute of Technology, St John Fisher College, SUNY Albany, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Buffalo State, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Syracuse University, and Utica College.

  • The Winter 2018 Cohort brought together YSLPP graduates from Utica College, Hamilton College, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, and Mohawk Valley Community College. On May 30, 2018, the Young Scholars Graduate Leadership Development Program graduated our first cohort.
