Applications for YouthLGE will be available Spring 2022!

Formerly known as ROOTs, Youth Leadership Greater Enid, is a youth leadership program for 2020-2021 high school juniors. Established in 1996, the program aims to show students and young adults the career and life opportunities Enid has to offer. This fast-paced, behind-the- scenes look at their hometown will open their eyes to the possibilities around them. They will be encouraged, applauded and inspired as they kick-off their senior year.

Youth Leadership Greater Enid is open to all 2020-2021 high school juniors residing in the Greater Enid area and does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, or national origin. Participants are selected on ability, demonstrated interest in their community, and insight for effective leadership.

The application process is to ensure a class that consists of members from diverse backgrounds and experiences. The class will be limited to a maximum of 40 members.

The retreat consists of a mandatory three-day, two-night session held in Enid. Participants are required to attend the entire session. Youth LGE participants will also be encouraged to attend a recognition banquet in correlation with LGE Orientation.
