Can We Count on You?

You can make THE difference.

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

LYS depends on generous contributions from friends and alumni to keep tuition affordable for all. Although the real cost per student is almost $650, with subsidies provided by LYS, students only pay $550 tuition.

It’s quick and easy to contribute to LYS today.

Every dollar you donate direct impacts the lives of these young leaders. You can make a great difference today with your generous contribution to Louisiana Youth Seminar.

Are you interested in sponsoring a student?

You can leave a lasting impact on a young leader’s life by sponsoring an LYS delegate today. There are many benefits for our sponsors, including: recognition from LYS, recognition in the community, a tax benefit and knowing that you’re changing someone’s life.

Do know of a family or company that would be interested in sponsoring 2-5 students?

We have a number of individuals, families and corporations that recruit and sponsor students from their community. Many individuals and corporations even partner with high schools and sponsor their students. It’s a great way to give back and change a life — or a community.
