National Urban League Youth Leadership Summit
Now in its 23rd year, the National Urban League Youth Leadership Summit functions as the annual culminating event for all National Urban League Education and Youth Development programs and reinforces the goals and practices of the local affiliates’ work. The Youth Leadership Summit coincides with the National Urban League Annual Conference to further provide young people with access to Urban League leadership.
For 5 days, nearly 500 middle- and high school students from across the country will have the opportunity to meet national leaders, live on a college campus and engage in a unique educational environment focused on further developing important skills for college, career and life. While youth participants learn to navigate the college experience, affiliate program staff and leadership are provided with structured professional development and capacity building workshops.
