BYLP 2010 Open House

The Black Youth Leadership Project, Inc. is hosting a one-day open house at the State Capitol geared toward African-American high school students interested in California politics, public policy, civics, governmental service, and/or community service on Friday, February 26, 2010. 


Students will participate with capitol staff in mock committee hearings and a legislative floor session, passing laws that are important to them.  The purpose of the open house is to encourage African-American students in grades 9-12 to regularly interact with their state's political and community leaders and to use this opportunity to discuss the legislative process, timely Policy concerns, and the role of democracy and advocacy within our communities.


Click here for the 2010 application for the BYLP Open House and submit completed applications by the January 19, 2010, deadline. 


If you are a student that has graduated from BYLP, we would love to have you come back and serve.  Parents, community leaders and other adults are also encouraged to volunteer that day.  


Also, please be sure to forward this application to all students regardless of ethnicity.
