Special Thanks

LYS could not be possible without the support of friends, alumni and donors like you. Thank you!

Whether you’ve contributed money or time, you’ve made LYS Louisiana’s Best. And you’ve ensured that NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.  

Contribute to LYS 2015

Every year a large number of students attend LYS through sponsorship from individuals, corporations, foundations and community organizations. These groups make it possible for these students to have the experience of Louisiana Youth Seminar.

Thank you to all who donated and gave scholarships. In 2014, LYS had over 300 individual donors pitch in, which is simply amazing.

For the remaining students, LYS subsidizes each student, so each only pays $475 for tuition to LYS. The real cost per student exceeds $550 — so LYS depends on your donations to subsidize tuition for each student in order to keep seminar affordable for all.

We will continue to hold fun fundraisers around town — from dinners to painting parties to online shopping programs. Stay tuned — we’ll be posting them on our Facebook page.  

Contribute today to support LYS 2015.
