Sponsorship Opportunities – Worcester Youth Leadership Institute

The Worcester Youth Leadership Institute (WYLI) is a partnership between the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, Central Massachusetts Workforce Investment Board, the United Way of Central Massachusetts, United Families for Change, Worcester Education Collaborative, the City of Worcester’s Youth Opportunities Office, and the Chamber.

The Institute offers students a seven-week learning experience and exposure to a variety of businesses, Worcester landmarks, and mentors. The Institute, which will begin the week of July 6, 2016 is part of a broader effort by the Chamber of Commerce to develop and mentor Worcester’s future leaders. The program is free for the participants and in fact most students come from the YouthWorks program and attend the program during work hours and are paid for their time.
