National Youth Leadership Forum

National Youth Leadership Forum

The National Youth Leadership Forum (abbreviated: NYLF) is a tuition-based educational organization founded in 1992 that contracts Envision EMI, a "for-profit" corporation, to facilitate and execute career/leadership programs for high school students throughout the United States, with the goal of career preparation. NYLF has an active online community of current and future participants as well as alumni. These people make up the NYLF Message Boards and NYLF IRC. The NYLF Message Boards were started by several alumni following the NYLF/Tech 2002 program, and have since been officially owned and maintained by NYLF staff. NYLF IRC is an alumni-run server and is not officially affiliated with NYLF.

In order to attend the NYLF program, students are nominated to attend a program by educators, organization advisors, alumni, and participating institutions or through classroom surveys (PSAT&SAT). Students may also be admitted through an application process. There is a scholarship available on a limited basis awarded to students who struggle financially. The price to attend is more than $2,000, and in addition students are responsible for other expenses (including airfare, parking, transportation to and from the conference, and other incidental expenses) during their Forum.
