Developing Young Leaders
NYLC develops young leaders by tapping into their passions to address real-world issues. Whether their goals are to improve their communities, promote traffic safety, or reform education, NYLC programming trains young people to become leaders on topics that matter to them. We work for and with youths to turn passions into skills, and to build and raise the platforms necessary for today’s young leaders to flourish.

Project Ignition addresses teen-driver safety issues and empowers youth to lead campaigns that make measurable differences in their schools, their communities, and beyond. It is founded on a service-learning strategy that embeds the topic of teen-driver safety more deeply within a school/afterschool programs and makes connections to academic goals.
