What is YLC?

Written by Jadiza Ingram and Janeva Mosher

Youth Leadership Camp is one month long camp in Oregon for the deaf and hard of hearing who are very motivated to become better leaders for our communities. Youth Leadership Camp is founded by Frank Turk in 1969. Ever since then, YLC has thrived on the basis of SLC: Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship respectively.

There are leaders coming into YLC from all over the world. We came here to develop our experience by bonding with new people and new backgrounds. We learn how to be advocates for our future. It is very beneficial as for our identities, development, social skills, and leadership skills.


Advice of the Week: Be sure to stay hydrated during heat wave!

Camp Council

YLC is full of exciting opportunities, camp council is one of them. Camp council provides a taste of parliamentary process and how to use them properly. Leaders will learn how to propose a montion and pass amendments to make YLC a better place to be. Leaders have a choice to run for camp council president, vice president, and secretary. Leaders nominated each other for the office, two prevailed with Jared Herman becoming the president and Rajena Guettler being the vice president. Team D is proud to have Rajena on our team and we would like to congratulate her on being camp council vide president! We also voted on a new secretary, Ryan Stumbo. We are looking forward what will happen from now on with camp council!
