The video below features the founder of LYS in addition to numerous students who had the incredible opportunity to attend LYS this past summer due to sponsorships from several Shell sites – including Shell's refinery and chemical plant in Deer Park, Texas.

The theme for LYS this year was ‘No Man is an Island.’ Throughout the week, students were immersed in activities to help them gain leadership and effective communication skills, practice goal setting and team building, and build confidence – all while empowering them to dream big.

Interested in attending LYS? Would you like Shell Deer Park to sponsor you?

As a reflection of our commitment to leadership development at site, Shell Deer Park is looking to sponsor four students from our local community to the 2017 Louisiana Youth Seminar (LYS) taking place July 16-21, 2017. We will consider students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year that live in our local area (Deer Park, Pasadena or La Porte) and are interested in developing their leadership skills.

Details on applying for one of the 2017 Shell Deer Park sponsored spots will be posted soon. If selected through the application process, Shell Deer Park will sponsor the student for the full value of the camp. If you are interested in being sponsored to attend this leadership camp, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted with the sponsorship application details once they are available.

About LYS

LYS is a weeklong leadership seminar that takes place on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During LYS, students go through a series of leadership skill building exercises and put their newly developed skills to practice in a group setting to discover that leadership is not merely a matter of position or authority, but a matter of action. Students are then encouraged to make a difference and to apply their knowledge and experience in their schools and communities. For more information, visit www.louisianayouthseminar.org.
