Started in 1999, the Alabama Governor's Youth Leadership Forum is an innovative, intensive, five-day career leadership training program for high school juniors and seniors with disabilities throughout Alabama. Program activities focus on career planning, leadership development, technology resources and information on disability history to assist young people with disabilities in reaching their maximum potential.

The forum is held on the campus of Troy State University in Troy in June of each year. There is NO charge for student delegates and volunteers to attend this forum. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from Troy State University. Below is the application in PDF format. The deadline for this year's YLF is March 29, 2019.
