The purpose of COYL is to engage senior high school students in a forum to learn about national issues, interact and network with other students to exchange ideas, and expose them to the opportunities available within our society.  This year's Conference will be conducted in the Student Union Building at the College of The Bahamas, November 4 - 5, 2015, commencing at 9:00 a.m. daily. 


As such, student beneficiaries will become leader-oriented and focus on forming positive relationships to help strengthen not just our community, but our country and the world at-large. The President, Mr. Keyron Smith, Executives and the College student community is pleased to welcome the registration of five (5) students per Senior High School. Beneficiaries should be in either grade 11 or 12 at a local Senior High School.


The Registration deadline is Wednesday, October 28, 2015, by 12:00 midnight the latest.  Participation is free of charge, and will include breaks, lunch and conference materials for each registered participant.
