Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC)

Exploring Leadership Through Example

At the center of the American story for over 200 years, Washington, D.C. is the perfect backdrop for talented junior high students to learn about the decisions that created a country, and the men and women who made them. In the shadow of our most beloved national monuments, JrNYLC students develop the tools to lead others, improve their communities, and fulfill their own potential.

  • Mock trials and trips to important sites such as Harpers Ferry show participants the complexities of leadership and immerse them in the details of historical events.
  • Extensive tours and discussions of the capital's monuments, governmental buildings, and war memorials lead to a more personal understanding of the people who have led the nation and the consequences of their decisions.
  • Students leave the JrNYLC with new skills to be a better leaders, excel at critical thinking, and improve their own communities through political involvement and activism.

The dozens of individual and team-based activities presented by the JrNYLC program are specifically created to help young people unlock their leadership abilities and start making a difference in their lives and communities. Students are introduced to important decision making skills and ethical considerations through a multi-faceted exploration of American History, in the places where events really happened.

Of course, space in this program is limited and will be filled in the order in which students enroll, so please enroll now or, for more detailed program information, visit our dedicated website at www.cylc.org/jrnylc/ today.

"Casey had the time of her life. She learned so much, made so many friends and had no problem doing her speech in front of 260 people! What a difference we see in Casey today. She can't wait to go again."
