Developing Young Leaders
Trainings & Workshops
Every human being is a leader who has unique strengths and abilities to lead and make a difference. In this interactive session, you will learn about your own leadership style, put your leadership skills into practice in a group activity, and have reflection discussions about the process. You will leave this session with a better understanding of your natural leadership abilities and how you work best with others.
What’s Your Why?
Knowing your why is an important first step in figuring out how to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy. Only when you know your ‘why’ will you find the courage to take the risks needed to get ahead, stay motivated when things don’t go your way, and move your life onto an entirely new, more challenging, and more rewarding trajectory. In this session, youth will explore their why and how it connects to providing service to their community.
NYLC will work with you to customize trainings that inspire leadership, confidence, and contribution for all young people.

NYLC's Training Approach
NYLC is the “Guide on the Side” rather than “Sage on the Stage”. We facilitate learning in which attendees are active participants rather than passive recipients.
