The MassSTAR (Massachusetts STudents Accepting Responsibility) Citizenship Conference is the flagship MYL Foundation event. This three-day leadership conference will be returning to Lasell College in Newton, MA. We invite one sophomore from every Massachusetts-accredited public, private, charter, and vocational school to participate in an exciting, hands-on learning experience. Student delegates are nominated and chosen by their school principals, guidance counselors, teachers, and advisors, based on their demonstrated and potential leadership ability. Since its inception in 1974, MYL Foundation’s annual programs have reached more than 5,000 students.
