The 14th annual Muslim Youth Leadership Program (MYLP) will be taking place in Sacramento, from Thursday, August 2, through Sunday, August 5! Apply today and learn about how government operates in our California State Capitol. The 40 students chosen from across that state will spend an intensive weekend with Muslim activists and youth as well as state lawmakers.

  • Meet elected officials and improve your networking skills
  • Obtain insight and career advice from top executives in these fields
