Date: Friday, May 5th, 2017

The Governors Youth Commission invites all Arizona high school youth to the 11th annual Youth Leadership Day (YLD) conference. This day provides an opportunity for students across the state to hear inspirational speakers, attend leadership development workshops and network with their peers.

Our goal is to motivate Arizona’s future leaders to recognize their inherent skills and gain the necessary tools to assist them in positively contributing to the development of a stronger, safer, and more prosperous state.

In 2016, YLD was attended by over 600 youth, youth group leaders, and educators. We hope to see you there this year!


Last year we had 20 workshops that focused on anti-bullying, increasing the awareness of substance abuse, how to apply for a college scholarship, finding your leadership style, increasing your civic knowledge, reducing stress, effective communication, AmeriCorps 101, self-defense, Native American History, marketing yourself for a job, and MORE!
