About the Youth Leadership Summit

NYLC equips young with skills for community action through a series of activities that explore identity and equity, rooted in social and emotional learning. The training provides hands-on learning through simulations on the intersectionality of race, class, ethnicity, and geography, explorations of personal leadership styles and cultural backgrounds, and action-planning for assessments leading to addressing community needs. Participants hear from national service leaders, as well as other workshop presenters and peers, and apply their learnings to action-planning. Key to this leadership development is an inquiry process that sparks creativity and social and emotional learning including:

  • Empowerment – contribution to community
  • Positive Values – caring, equality and justice, and responsibility
  • Positive Identity – personal power, self-esteem, sense of purpose, positive view of the future
  • Social Competencies – planning and decision-making, cultural competencies, peaceful conflict resolution

Young People Gain:

  • The ability to work together with people of all backgrounds.
  • Allies to support leadership development and service-learning action plans.
  • The tools and knowledge to create equitable change in their communities.
  • Motivation to take action for the common good.

They:

  • Listen to different perspectives and personal experiences
  • Engage in meaningful leadership activities.
  • Experience discomfort by pushing boundaries, from team-building to conversations about power and privilege.
  • Speak truth about their own stories, recognizing their knowledge and expertise.

Teams comprised of 3-10 youth, in partnership with their school, nonprofit or afterschool partner, will be selected to attend the youth leadership training and implement their project through a grant from the Points of Light Foundation. The nonprofit or afterschool program will be the fiscal agent for the grant and its implementation.

There is no fee to participate in the Youth Summit, meals and snacks will be provided, and participants may request support for local transportation to the Conference.
