The delegates are chosen through a statewide competition that seeks students with disabilities who have leadership potential. Each applicant submits a standard form, an essay, and letter of recommendation. The group that is selected is representative of the state in terms of geographic, gender, economic status, ethnicity, and types of disabilities.
STAFF: Are often Alumni of our MYLF program who want to come back as staff. Staff members are chosen based upon a set of criteria including but not limited too maturity, enthusiasm, responsibility, and punctuality. It is our belief that Alumni make some of the best staff members because they bring their own experiences to the next generation of MYLF delegates. An important aspect of the staff team is cohesion and modeling behavior. An idea staff member has transitioned their mindset from that of student to that of role model.
