Our students most value being a part of YLF because of the friendship they share with their mentors. Students have greater self-confidence, set and achieve more goals, and develop positive habits related to character as a result of their time with mentors.

High School Busness Plan

Virtuous Leadership Academy
for High School Students

The YLF high school mentorship program is the most prestigious of all YLF programs. Students learn how to communicate well, work more effectively, prioritize their time and energy, and make decisions to build a more virtuous and service-oriented life.



Each year, students are presented with a social problem and asked to design a business solution for it within a particular industry.  Through college-level seminars and working in a professional environment, students learn about complexity of problem and use "design thinking" in groups across civil, art, STEM and business.  After 5-weeks, teams present business ideas to C-Level judges. The 2024 Summer Business Plan Competition will run from July 1 to August 2. Participants meet between the hours of 10:00 - 4:00pm.


Mentorship: Students will meet monthly with a matched mentor.

Saturday Workshop Series: Students attend 2-3 workshops about getting into, having success in and planning for success beyond high school.

Community Service: 11th and 12th grade students are asked to become mentors to our elementary school students during the school-year and to keep a written journal of their experience. All students are asked to join semesterly service days.
