YLC Campers to National Association of the Deaf Youth Leadership Camp

YLC Campers to National Association of the Deaf Youth Leadership Camp

07.20.17 | Three names of the campers are Matthew Brown, Nthabeleng Macdonald and Luis Uribe Soto.

Louisiana Association of the Deaf sent three students from Louisiana School for the Deaf to National Association of the Deaf Youth Leadership Camp (NAD YLC). It has an intensive four-week summer camp program for deaf and hard of hearing high school students. The camp provides leaders the ability to develop their scholarship, leadership, and citizenship qualities in nature environment. Leaders experience self-discovery, learn about self-identity, confidence, and self-esteem and understand many things about themselves. Our association supports the campers to cover their application, tuition fees and travel expenses. Community members, including YLC alumni, builders, and guest speakers, are actively involved in this program. Each of them makes a lasting impact on the program. The total fee for the annual camp session covers $3,000 camp fee, $50 application fee, airfare, ground transportation (i.e., to/from airport, bus, or train station and weekly laundry visits), one NAD YLC t-shirt and one NAD YLC group photograph.
