For the third straight year, the Worcester Youth Leadership Institute (WYLI) is set to get underway.

The institute offers students a seven-week learning experience and exposure to a number of businesses, Worcester landmarks, and mentors.

“The goal is simple – expose high schools students to the myriad of businesses, leaders, mentors, and possibilities available in their own communities. These students are our future leaders. We want them to know and understand that their community can offer them a unique college experience and fascinating job opportunities, and provide insight and perspective on the city’s history, leadership, business community, and government make-up,” said Timothy Murray, president, and CEO, Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The institute started the week of June 25.

The Institute, which will run from June 27 to August 10, will introduce participants to the business, government, education and non-profit sectors in a variety of ways; including talks, question and answer sessions with the leadership structures of various sectors and organizations, visits and tours, and sessions at a number of venues. 

Students will visit one or two sites every week and participate in a leadership training program called Bounce! offered through Workforce Central Career Center.

The curriculum will also include a skills development component.

Topics will include leadership focus areas from the Worcester fabric, such as entrepreneurism, Worcester history and culture, life and health sciences, non-profit organizations, and city government.
