    Historical note

    The Southern California Youth Leadership Seminar (YCS) is a five-day seminar for high school juniors, hosted at Pepperdine University. The program was founded in 1977 by Pepperdine’s Chancellor Emeritus Charles B. Runnels, and the seminar inspires students to make a personal contribution to America’s future. The first program was held in 1978. Approximately 250 students are selected to receive scholarships to attend the program. The tuition and on-campus expenses are funded by The Pilgrim Foundation, the YCS Committee of Endorsement, business leaders, and foundations. Students hear speeches and interact with leaders of society to explore national and world topics.
