Youth Lead Organizers (YLOS)
Every school year, 1-3 Youth Lead Organizers (YLOs) represent each high school in Portland (Deering, Portland, and Casco Bay High Schools). YLOs meet weekly to plan larger district-wide meetings and to learn and practice organizing and facilitation skills. YLOs facilitate activities for the larger YEP meetings and work with their respective high schools to support campaigns and recruitment of other students.
If you are interested in getting involved as a Lead Organizer next school year, know that we prioritize youth who are part of our Youth Engagement Partners before applying. If you are interested in getting involved, fill out the form on our Contact Us page.
