About Junior National Young Leaders Conference
Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders Today
Start your leadership journey at the Junior National Young Leaders Conference. During this six-day Envision program, Washington, D.C. will serve as a living classroom for students while they develop important leadership skills and enjoy the educational experience of a lifetime.
With a focus on influential figures from American history and social advocacy, JrNYLC is a program packed with fun and engaging site experiences as well as hands-on activities that bring the concepts and skills of effective leadership to life.
Students at JrNYLC learn to work together as they develop action plans that they can put into practice in their homes and communities, and continue beyond their conference experience. Students also explore monuments and memorials around our nation's capital and visit George Washington's Mount Vernon, where they practice leadership while participating in a Be Washington simulation.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2022-2023 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.
