Training & Consulting Services

At the core of YLI’s Training and Consulting Services is the belief that just, equitable systems, organizations, and programs can only be achieved by actively including everyone’s voice — especially those that are most often left out.

Our array of innovative trainings draw directly on the powerful youth leadership programming we have developed alongside our youth leaders. These field-tested trainings provide organizations of all types and sizes with the tools and skills they need to authentically engage youth voice.
