Alabama Youth Leadership Forum

The inaugural Alabama Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) was held on the campus of Troy University in June 1999. YLF is an innovative, intensive, five-day career leadership training program for high school juniors and seniors with disabilities. These students come to the Youth Leadership Forum from throughout Alabama. As part of the Forum, delegates attend sessions on self-advocacy, independent living, career exploration, healthcare transitioning, and assistive technology.  Delegates travel to the State Capitol where they meet with State Legislators and the Governor.  Delegates attend a Mentor Luncheon where each delegate is paired with an adult with a disability (typically similar to his/her own).  This luncheon creates the opportunity to discuss the delegates’ goals and challenges with individuals who can best understand the challenges faced by those delegates. The luncheon typically is keynoted by an achieving disabled individual, providing further encouragement and counsel to the delegates. During the week, there are opportunities for socializing as well as leadership activities for the delegates. The program provides delegates with the tools and information needed for their success as they return to their homes, schools and communities to face challenges that may arise, know they can become employed, live independently and be successful contributing adults in society.

The Greater Alabama Black Belt Regional Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation STEM Summer Academy

Troy University is offering a free weeklong summer program intended to increase the number of minority students pursuing science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) degrees as part of the Greater Alabama Black Belt Region Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (GABBR LSAMP), a scholarship program of the National Science Foundation. The program requires that these students be from one of the following minority groups:  African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, or Native Pacific Islanders.  Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above, and have recommendations from a STEM teacher and a school counselor. 

The ten selected students will spend one week at Troy University where they will stay in a residence hall, take academic classes, and engage in other activities intended to prepare them for pursuing a STEM degree.  Housing and food will be provided at no cost. 

Should these students later enroll at Troy University, they will be considered for one of our LSAMP scholarships. 

The GABBR Alliance is made up of eight institutions from the Black Belt region.

BRIDGE’s Recipe for Success:  Literacy, Health, and Community

BRIDGE (Building Relationships In Diverse Generational Environments) will focus on 30 students who are rising fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students and 30 senior adults.  The program is designed to mend gaps between seniors and youth, using literacy as the element of collaboration, and extending values, empathy, and compassion through instructional support by practicing reading, writing, interviewing, and technology skills. Seniors will share a wealth of knowledge from their life experiences by offering mentoring to the youth that should extend beyond the project.  BRIDGE will provide skill enhancement of literacy and encourage a natural love of reading and writing. As the project title mentions, the students will also focus on aspects of health and community. Professors in Troy’s School of Nursing will visit with the participants to discuss areas of health such as nutrition and exercise.  Opportunities are also planned with other health related community professionals.  The BRIDGE program is sponsored in part by a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
