Host a Youth Leadership Council

NYC Youth Leadership Councils (YLCs) are working groups of high school students ages 14-21 who collaborate with adult leaders to catalyze authentic change in their communities.

If you are committed to civic engagement and are interested in learning more, attend the next YLC Program Orientation on February 14, 2019. The orientation will provide a practical overview of the YLC network and youth-adult partnership program model. Register to attend. Send questions to
