A Glimpse Into the 2015 National Youth Leadership Training

Yesterday marked the end of a week-long excursion into the north woods of Minnesota – the 2015 National Youth Leadership Training. The camp, which has decades-old roots at NYLC, brought together young people from across the United States, and even one camper from the State of Qatar. It was not NYLC’s first trek to the Audubon Center of the North Woods, where the training camp has frequently been held, but the experience was still eye-opening.

22 young leaders met as Youth Advisory Council members banded together with our Youth4Education Lead Activists for six days of self-discovery, team-building, and leadership training to lay the groundwork for impactful service-learning projects to be created and implemented by each young leader in their home communities, meant to address education inequity and the underlying factors that support it.
