TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO, Youth Leadership Institute began amplifying the voice of youth leaders to drive social change in their communities. Today, YLI proudly stands as a nationally recognized leader in youth development. Through community-based programs grounded in youth-adult partnerships, YLI youth leaders and alumni—now 90,000 strong from over 220 communities—conduct research, lead campaigns, and have driven 122 policy victories and counting.

As we mobilize resources in support of youth development, we are delighted to invite you to join us for YLI’s biggest fundraising event of the year, our “Raise Your Voices” Gala on Thursday, November 15, 2018.
