A Generation of Leaders

Are you trying to nail down your summer 2017 plans? Look no further. We’ve got you covered. For decades, NYLC has hosted a summer camp that powers a generation of leaders. The National Youth Leadership Training is a seven-day immersive leadership camp that activates young people to address today’s most pressing challenges and helps to create impactful change.

NYLT is designed for teams of high school students and an adult mentor who will complete a service-learning project, focusing on addressing issues of education equity upon returning home. Adult mentors will join the youth participants for the final days of NYLT and then continue to support them throughout the year on their service-learning action plans.

Campers leave NYLT with the ability to work together with people of all backgrounds, allies to support their leadership development, the tools and knowledge to create equitable change in your community, and motivation to take action for the common good.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been able to learn so much from a group of young students, seeing their perspectives and hear their stories, and being able to see their empathy and their compassion for human life and for service,” said 2016 attendee Solomon Stovall-Ceja. “It’s really inspiring to me to actually dedicate my life to service-learning and help others out there.” Read more testimonials from past attendees.

Mark your calendars for July 23-29, 2017 at the Audubon Center of the North Woods in Sandstone, Minn. Registration forms for NYLT 2017 are now live.
