About the National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM
Future STEM Leaders
NYLF Pathways to STEM is a unique learning experience for bright, forward-thinking elementary school students who will evolve into next generation innovators, engineers, doctors, software developers, and scientists.
Students learn by doing during hands-on simulations and workshops. They also have the opportunity to choose the experience that is best suited for them by selecting either the six-day Residential or the five-day Day program.
Virtually all career fields today require a solid foundation of STEM. That’s precisely why these are the fastest growing areas of study, and the reason that STEM professionals are in the highest demand in the United States and throughout the world. Early exposure to these fields can set today’s kids on a path to success by giving them the tools needed to make informed decisions about the future.
NYLF Pathways to STEM is a fantastic opportunity for curious and high-aspiring young students to make new friends and enjoy unforgettable adventures while exploring the frontiers of 21st century science and technology.

When Care Is Hours Away: A Simulation in Collaboration with Stanford Medicine
Created by wilderness medicine expert Dr. Paul Auerbach and simulation expert Dr. Rebecca Smith-Coggins, professors in the Stanford University School of Medicine’s Department of Emergency Medicine, this realistic simulation allows students to learn how to control minor, but serious injuries and practice the proper application of medical splints.
Please note, we are currently evaluating all aspects of NYLF Pathways to STEM and may make changes to the curriculum to ensure that the program meets the most up-to-date health and safety standards.
