Getting to Young Leaders
Young Leaders Program 2023 is held at Linfield University . The address is:
900 SE Baker Street
McMinnville, Oregon 97128
How to Arrive at Campus
Just search Linfield University in your preferred maps app and it should take you to the main entrance. Once you arrive at the main campus entrance off of SW Baker Street, enter campus and wind through Founders Way and turn right onto Pioneer Way (it's one way, pretty easy to follow). Park in the parking lot next to Walker Hall. Enter through the front doors into Walker Hall and we will be there to greet you!
There is not a lot of parking, so once students have been checked in you are encouraged to depart to allow other students to arrive. Families are not allowed in the dorms, so plan to say your goodbyes at Walker Hall!
All students and attached staff should assemble at the Flagpole in the QUAD (the area between all of the educational buildings) no later 11:45AM for First Assembly. At first Assembly we will get you into your states, teach you some basic procedures, and then take you to have lunch with your States.
Dorms are shared among several students, so visitors are not allowed in them. Parents should say their goodbyes at the registration desk.
Get Ready for The Week
You should plan to come ready for hard work. You will arise early, prepare yourself through personal hygiene and breakfast, and plan your daily adventure. You will learn by doing through the interactive simulation and first hand through outstanding speakers and classes. You will fall asleep each night exhausted and satisfied only to arise early the next day to do it all over again.
During this program, you will be treated like an adult, and you are expected to act like one. Childlike behavior is not tolerated by staff nor students and will mitigate your effectiveness within the program. Take it seriously, and you will exceed your highest expectations of yourself and return home a new person.
