Youth Leadership Training

Youth Leadership Training

NYLC offers young people effective and engaging training in schools and community-based organizations. We have more than 35 years of youth leadership development experience, providing young people opportunities — whether they are just getting started in service-learning, sharpening their focus on education equity, or strengthening communities through youth leadership. NYLC staff develop trainings that match the needs of young people.


Annual National Youth Leadership Training

For decades, NYLC has hosted a summer camp that powers the next generation of leaders. Racism, classism, and oppression affect everyone, but young people are among the most vulnerable. The National Youth Leadership Training gives young people the support and resources to address these issues – and make meaningful change happen.
