How to Apply

Dear Student,

We are pleased to invite you to apply as a Capital District Delegate for the 31st Angelo Del Toro Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute (PR/HYLI).  New York State Assemblyman Del Toro, who was of Puerto Rican descent, said to students in 1991 that the most promising future leaders are students like you who “can influence how the government and how society goes on, and that is very important.”

Students who are accepted to the Institute attend training sessions in the Capital Region from December to March to learn about leadership and the legislative process in New York State. These sessions culminate in a weekend Institute from March 13 – 14, 2021. For the first time ever, an unlimited number of PRHYLI students from across New York State will come together for the 2021 PRHYLI virtual event. Seniors have an opportunity to submit an essay for a scholarship and the winners are announced during the Student Recognition and Scholarship Awards. Students who attend PR/HYLI are eligible to earn points towards the Seal of Biliteracy.

We hope that you will consider applying. This is an opportunity of a lifetime. Only you can make the decisions that will shape your life. Come and join us!
