Youth Leadership Track—Engaging and empowering youth means more than having them make posters and plan dances. This special “Youth to Youth” (Y2Y) strand of the National Urban Service Learning Institute will engage youth in personal leadership development, as well as provide opportunities for youth to take their service-learning initiatives to a new level. Teams of youth will have the opportunity to develop the skills and gain the resources necessary to train other youth and adults in high quality service-learning and evaluate the impact of these initiatives. Schools are encouraged to bring a team of 4-6 youth participants who will be able to take the knowledge and skills learned at this Institute back to their local communities.

Join us for this annual two-day event that focuses on applying K-12 Service-Learning Standards for Quality Practice in urban environments. Hosted by the National Youth Leadership Council with support from New Foundations Charter School and the Institute for Global Education and Service Learning.
