Over the 3 1/2 day Summit, the YLS enhances participants’ ability to speak confidently, work effectively in teams, and builds their capacity to lead. In turn, the YLS students then use these skills to serve their schools and communities. They share what they learned with other GEAR UP students become an active mentor, support, and advocate for college access and success in coordination with the EWC GEAR UP program.
Autumn graduated from Torrington High School and will be attending Eastern Wyoming College this fall.
