Congressional Youth Leadership Council
The Congressional Youth Leaderhip Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational organization, that sponsors several national and international leadership conferences throughout the year. Founded in 1985 and located in Washington, D.C., the CYLC is dedicated to "fostering and inspiring young people to achieve their full leadership potential."
Every CYLC sponsored program is designed to instruct, enrich and enthuse promising students - preparing them for a lifetime of leadership with an unforgettable experience. Programs include Global Young Leaders Conference, Global Young Leaders Summit, Junior National Young Leaders Conference, National Young Leaders Conference, National Young Leaders State Conference and Presidential Youth Inaugural Conference.
CYLC programs offer students the opportunity to discuss current events and issues with top policy makers and international actors, analyze concepts and then put them immediately to work! Each dynamic program features creative decision-making simulations that challenge young minds to solve problems and lead their peers through role-playing exercises in an energy-charged atmosphere far from the traditional classroom experience.
