The application for our 2024 class of the Young Leaders Council is now live! The Young Leaders Council (YLC) equips young people (ages 18-25) with the skills and experiences needed to advocate for environmental issues they care about most. In addition to being taught by Sierra Club staff and partnering organizations, the council can expect to gain experience in planning and implementing events like lobby days, policy and issue webinars, and days of action.
