Meet a Few of Our Young Leaders!
What We Do
YLI seeks to develop leadership skills in youth, ages 11 to 22, through a wide variety of leadership training forums, workshops and seminars. Each budding young leader will be challenged with highly interactive, mind-shifting and team-building exercises that build confidence and the courage to explore new ideas and new ways of thinking. The participants will have the opportunity to network, interview, collaborate, build relationships and lead conversations that are creative and intuitive with other like-minded, aspiring young leaders.
Our youth leaders will learn to master new skills in the areas of time management, goal setting, communication, storytelling, problem solving, critical thinking, critical analysis, and strategic planning, among others.
AREAS OF FOCUS
Our work falls into four primary areas of focus: interpersonal skills development, conflict resolution, ethical leadership, and civics.
