YADAPP is led by three levels of Youth Staff: Youth Leaders, Junior Staff and Conference Interns. All Youth Staff are individuals who have committed to staying alcohol and drug-free and serve as role models to their peers. Youth Staff take key roles at the YADAPP conference, and throughout the year they act as ambassadors for YADAPP, encouraging their schools and communities to participate in the program.
Youth Staff are chosen each year through an application process from individuals who have previously participated in YADAPP. YADAPP participation must be consecutive in order to apply and begins with participating in YADAPP as a Participant.
Youth Leaders are selected from applicants who attended the last YADAPP conference as a Participant. As a Youth Leader you will: gain real world leadership experience and further explore leadership theories and concepts, build relationships with other Youth Staff, Participants, Adult Sponsors and Conference Staff, help build your resume and strengthen your network across the Commonwealth. The deadline to apply is November 1.
