YCLA Nominations will be back open in 2020.

In the meantime…we would LOVE your input via this short survey to make YCLA even better for 2020 and beyond.

Grand Cayman, October 17th, 2019 –The Young Caymanian Leadership Award originally scheduled for 30 November 2019 has been postponed. 

Through careful evaluation, the Young Caymanian Leadership Awards Board made a conscious decision to take the best attributes over the last 20 years and refocus the efforts on a rebirth that will serve the younger generations needs, further providing a sustainable future for leadership development and recognition in the Cayman Islands by postponing this years YCLA Awards Gala to 2020.  

“We hope and ask that the interest and passion from those within our community will be a blessing. We encourage everyone with a vested interest in the development and recognition of young Caymanian leaders will contribute feedback and ideas to assist in the enhancement of YCLA. After nearly 2 decades of conducting the award we are committed to a positive outcome with a refreshed approach to YCLA.” stated the YCLA Board.  “We look forward to this opportunity to hear from our young leaders and established leaders to ensure a sustainable future for YCLA that aligns with the needs of our next generation of leaders in Cayman.”

The Board of Directors have launched a survey and are conducting focus groups to seek input on leadership development and the awards programme with the intention to relaunch YCLA in 2020. 

Last year’s recipient, Staci Scott has engaged with various youth groups and organizations to share her journey and inspire others. The YCLA Alumni, consisting of almost 100 recipients and finalists, will continue to engage with youth organizations and participate in speaking engagements while the planning for 2020 is underway.
