    The National Youth Leadership Training, a four-day immersive leadership camp at the University of Minnesota, inspires young people to address today’s most pressing challenges and create impactful change.

    It’s a different kind of summer camp, powering a generation of leaders.

    What You Do at NYLT:

    - Engage in meaningful activities.

    - Experience discomfort by pushing your boundaries, from a simulations to difficult conversations about power and privilege.

    - Speak your truth about your own story and recognize the knowledge and expertise you already have.

    - Listen generously to different perspectives and personal experiences.

    What You Get from NYLT:

    - The ability to work together with people of all backgrounds.

    - Allies to support your leadership development and service-learning community action plan.

    - The tools and knowledge to create equitable change in your community.

    - Motivation to take action for the common good.

    This leadership opportunity is open to both youth (entering grades 9-12 in 2018) and adults. Adult partners are invited to join their team the final two days (Sun. - Mon.) of the training.
