Youth Leadership Conference

The annual Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) invites high school freshmen and sophomores from Greater Boston to the Kennedy School for a full-day of leadership workshops with Harvard students and faculty.


During the conference, students will:


  • Design and plan a project to improve their communities

  • Participate in hands-on workshops to develop their leadership skills

  • Share ideas and experiences with students from other high schools

  • Hear from successful Harvard students and faculty on what it takes to lead and make a positive impact


By the end of the conference, students will be empowered to execute their projects and create real change in the schools and neighborhoods they live in.


For volunteer opportunities, please contact the YLC Executive Team: Kyle Yoder (kyleyoder@hks.harvard.edu) or Kadijatou Diallo (kdiallo@hks.harvard.edu)
