Tentative Calendar 2022

The tentative calendar for 2022 is appended below. We’ll update the calendar as plans develop and ideas materialize. New programs are currently being designed and YLAC is planning to expand its footprint to more cities. YLAC also works with organizations to co-develop customized programs/ initiatives. These programs are not pre-decided and, therefore, not included in the calendar below.
 
Note: Applications to each program open about two-three months before the program kicks off. If you would like to be intimated when a program of interest is announced, please sign up below. Alternatively, you can follow us on social media (LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook) for updates.
