2018 YLC General Orientations
Thank you for your interest in the
NYC Youth Leadership Council (YLC)
program. The YLC program is a civic engagement and service learning opportunity open to New York City high school students ages 14-21. Administered by NYC Service and run through partnerships with schools, City agencies, and community-based organizations throughout NYC, students serving on a YLC have the opportunity to collaborate with adult leaders to address crucial issues and catalyze authentic change in communities across all five boroughs through a combination of policy, practice, and/or advocacy service. By joining a YLC, students will be empowered to team up with youth from their neighborhood or school and develop the tools and skills to put their ideas into action. The shared goal is to improve the effectiveness of policies and practices that impact the lives and communities of all New Yorkers – particularly those that pertain to young people – and prepare New York’s youth to fully participate in our democracy.
Please complete the following registration form if you are interested in attending an upcoming YLC facilitator orientation. The orientation is geared toward organizations already familiar with the YLC program, and is focused on equipping YLC facilitators with a range of activities and best practices for engaging youth members in interactive experiences. Attendees will receive a copy of our YLC Youth Engagement Guide (a.k.a. operations manual) and have the chance to clarify any questions or concerns you might have directly with the YLC program team.
If you are interested in learning more about what the YLC program is, the kinds of organizations that can join our partner network, and the process for launching a YLC, we encourage you to sign up for one of our YLC info sessions instead of the facilitator orientation.
