What if I'm not selected?

There are no limitations on how many times you can apply. This program is highly competitive and only a limited number of folks can be accepted into each cohort.

As always we encourage any interested applicants to attend our annual leadership trainings in the Fall (Q&A Summit), in the Summer (QYLTS Action Camp), and get involved in our year-round and seasonal programs.
