It's July and YLI is less than 1 month away, we are excited to see you all soon! Please read through to the end for information about check-in, learn where to find answers to frequently asked questions, and access the waivers and releases that youth guardians are required to sign for youth participants prior to YLI.

Questions about YLI?

Is this your first time at YLI? Do you have questions about check-in, housing, meals, and getting around the conference center? We realize you may have some questions about YLI, especially if this is your first year attending. Please reach out to me (401-276-4891, for anything YLI related, I welcome all of your questions! In the meanwhile, visit the YLI website for information on community norms, getting to the Conference Center, parking passes, and required forms. And visit the FAQ page for frequently asked questions.

Conference Check-in

Check-in times are tiered to cut down on lines and wait time at the check-in table and to help us get things kicked off on schedule. Your check-in time will be sent to the Adult Ally email address that was used for registration.

When you arrive to the conference center, select one or two people to check-in your entire group. Please arrive at your scheduled time to check-in, pick up your group's conference materials, and enjoy lunch before the conference officially begins.

Reminder: Required Forms

There are two required forms that everyone under the age of 18 must have signed prior to arriving at YLI, a medical and photo/video release for Roger Williams University (RWU), and a photo/video release for The Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF). Adult attendees are required to complete Photo/Video releases for both RWU and NMEF. All forms are listed below and can also be found on the YLI website, please bring the forms with you at check-in.
