Plano Youth Leadership accepts applications in the Spring for the following year’s program. Students who are currently enrolled in the 9th grade are eligible to apply for the following year class if they reside in the city limits or Plano or are served by PISD, whether attending public school (PISD or non-PISD), private school or home school.
Each application goes through a rigorous selection process and thirty-six students, making up a cross section of the community, are selected to participate. Students are required to attend the first two sessions and subsequent monthly sessions totaling nine sessions beginning with the ropes course and wrapping up with Graduation.
The one-time tuition fee is $175 and need-based scholarships are available.
