2006 National Youth Leadership Training
July 16-23, 2006
Audubon Center of the North Woods, Sandstone, Minnesota
For High School Youths, Educators, and Community Workers

Registration open through June 9, 2006.

Each year, high school students from across the country gather for the National Youth Leadership Training (formerly the National Youth Leadership Camp), a life-changing week of adventure, self-discovery, friendship, cultural exchange, leadership building, and service.

Held in Sandstone, Minn., at the Audubon Center of the North Woods ? a 535-acre sanctuary rich with old-growth red and white pines, hardwood forests, restored wetlands, and prairies ? NYLT engages participants in a wide range of physical and intellectual activities, from rock climbing and canoeing to stimulating seminars, small-group interactions, and service projects. Young people are challenged to push their limits; use leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills; build cross-cultural bonds; and prepare themselves for active, contributing roles in their communities.

During the final two days of training, teams of participants and their adult sponsors complete intensive planning for community service and leadership projects in their home communities. NYLT connects participating teams with a nationwide network of service-learning professionals to assist them in implementing these projects.
