Our vision is that all young people become civically informed and engaged global citizens by participating in service-learning during their formative years.
We train young leaders by tapping into their passions to address real world issues. Whether their goals are to improve their communities, promote safe driving, or reform education, we empower youth to Serve. Learn. Change the world.®
We are a force in the development and advancement of youth civic engagement through service-learning, and the national expert on service-learning as a tool to engage young people. For over 40 years, NYLC has empowered young people to provide meaningful service to their communities, develop life skills, and be civically engaged citizens of the world.
