What, is YLT?
Young Leaders Today (YLT) combines all the YAC Retreat groups, Summit Groups, College and Sr. YBA Leaders together.
Why, why, are parents invited?
Parents are the biggest supporters; they very rarely get to see what YAC does or what the kids do.
What happens at YLT?
Three separate programs: College/HS, Parents, 23+. There will be Dharma sessions, Leadership sessions, and fun sessions. Sometimes all three groups will come together – like for meals, services, and the Bishop’s Session. Mostly apart though.
Where do people sleep?
College/HS groups sleep on Social Hall floor, we have foam pads everyone can use. 23+ group stays in the Small Chapel, we have foam pads everyone can use. You are free to book a hotel room if you want. Bring sleeping bag! Parents – can stay at the Radisson Suites Buena Park, or if they have an account with another chain, they can stay there.
What is the attire for the day?
What is the attire for the Banquet?
The banquet will be a “Blackout”. Come in your black dressy clothes. Think more trendy and fashion, less elegant gown-type. Dress up, but not in funeral clothes. Everything will be black, tablecloths, balloons, napkins, etc.
Is there a dance?
Yes, there will be a dance, either with a DJ or a live Band. It depends on the number of attendees.
Where do we shower?
OCBC has showers in the gym. Or, if you are lucky, you can go to one of the hotel rooms the parents have or YAC has.
What meals are provided?
Friday evening snacks. Saturday Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Sunday Breakfast, Snacks, Drinks.
Do parents HAVE to stay at the Radisson Suites?
No, it is merely a suggestion and it is where YAC is staying. If parents have accounts with other hotel chains they are free to stay there. We are not getting any discounted rates from the Radisson.
Are you providing transportation to/from airport?
For the College/HS group, yes. For the other groups it will depend on the number of people who need rides and when. Doesn’t hurt to ask us though!
