Thank you for your interest in the Young Cattlemen's Leadership Program. We want to get to know you more, but first we want to make sure you know some details about our program. Please note, your application must be submitted with a Letter of Recommendation uploaded in the form below. This letter must be written by an alum of the Young Cattlemen's Leadership Program or County/State Cattlemen's leadership.
This program will be six sessions between May 2024 and February 2025. Most sessions will begin on a Friday at noon and go until noon on Saturday, with the exception of the first meeting (May 2-3), which happens in conjunction with the May Board of Directors Meeting in Montgomery. In order to graduate from the program, you must attend 80 percent of the YCLP programs provided throughout the year and earn your Beef Quality Assurance and Masters of Beef Advocacy certifications, as well as complete a leadership project.
Deadline to apply is March 17 to be considered for YCLP Class XI.
You are encouraged to attend the entire convention, but YCLP graduation will be at the awards banquet on Saturday night of the event.
The first session will be held in conjunction with the May Board of Directors meeting (May 2-3). This is the only session held on a Thursday-Friday.
